It was a lovely evening with the full moon spreading it's silvery light over the hilly landscape, so I decided to walk home from my friend Ron's house with the dogs on Thursday after dinner.

As I descended the hill into Rignac, Thabo suddenly raced ahead and I heard a scuffly flurry of activity.  Then two small furry beasts clumsily sped pasts me on either side, one making funny piggy squeaks before they both disappeared into the hedge.

After twenty-three years in the Lot, that was only my second badger sighting. Absolutely thrilling.
