Dave Kime, who lives at Glenborrodale, writes, "The recent storms seem to have had a sad result, a drowned badger which we found on our slipway this morning. Still well preserved so I think it isn't too long dead and I presume washed into the sea with spring tide and high winds - but no sign of scavengers yet. Is anyone interested in badger post-mortems/taxidermy?"
Many thanks to Dave for picture and story.
