altOne of the highlights of the bushcraft calendar is the Mayday Meet organized by our friends at The Bushcraft Magazine who’s strap line “reconnecting to the landscape” closely follows the ethos of our own work here at Badger Bushcraft.

During a recent excursion to a Kent beach one of the young men, who searched amongst the rocks with great patience and dogged determination, collected the find of the day – a fossilised gastropod!

We were interested to read recently about a new mobile phone app that uses visual recognition software to help identify some of the North American tree species from photographs taken of the leaves, what an exciting use of modern technology and it is apparently free!

I’m not too sure that “boing, boing” perfectly describes or heralds the arrival of spring or that a day after the vernal equinox we are right to proclaim the “spring is here”, however it is my birthday and has always traditionally been the start of spring in my family for more years than I care to count.

We have recently been playing around with infrared wildlife and trail cameras in the Kent countryside and some privately owned land that we have access to and thought it would be nice to share the results on the Badger Bushcraft Blog.

A recent and rare morning off made for an early start to pack the Land Rover with a Inca, our Labrador Retriever, and a day sack with binoculars, camera, et al to journey to the south of The Swale for a long walk and a visit to the Oare Marshes Nature Reserve.

We have been using Nite GlowRings since 2007 and they are a tremendously useful source of light and last longer, are smaller and in the long-term more cost effective and environmentally friendly the chemical glow sticks.

We have recently discovered a very interesting chap called Tim Daw who produces some products with some bold claims that includes "Unbreakable Boot & Shoe Laces" and “Unbreakable Starter Cords”. Badger Bushcraft will be putting these products to the test and featuring the results on the Kit – Tried and Test section of our blog.
