Yesterday was my birthday and we had a lovely trip out to the British Wildlife Centre. I was particularly thrilled with the badger sett. I have never seen a live badger before and here was a whole family, sleeping and grooming and moving about in their underground tunnels which we could watch from 'inside' their sett (through glass windows.) I also saw a weasel, a pine marten and wild cats. The harvest mice touched me the most: so tiny and yet so perfect, little hands and beady eyes, smaller than my thumb and yet created and known by God, existing and thriving in their own grassy world.
