  • Scientific name:  Meles meles
  • Size:  Badgers grow to around 80cm in length, and have a short tail of around 15cm.  They are our heaviest carnivore, weighing up to 18kg
  • Distribution:  Distributed throughout the U.K. but more frequently seen in the south and west
  • Size:  Approx 90cm tall with a wingspan of almost 200cm
  • Distribution:  Found throughout the UK
  • Months seen:  All year round
  • Life Span: 5 years (source BTO)
  • Habitat:  Ponds, lakes, rivers and reservoirs
  • Food:  Fish, frogs, eels, mice, voles and even small rabbits
  • Special features:  The large and rather lanky Grey Heron has an almost prehistoric look about it, especially when flying.  In the air, its wing beats are very slow, and its head is drawn back close to its body.
  • Herons have long legs built for wading.  They will sometimes wait patiently in the water for fish to swim close to them before lunging at them with their dagger-like beak.
  • Grey herons build large nests at the tops of tall trees, often in the same place year after year.  Where several birds nest in the same area, the site is called a 'heronry', and some of the larger heronries in the UK have over 100 nests.  February and March are good months to go heron watching because the trees are still leafless and you can get a clear view of them as they start nest building.
