|The start of the sett - it stretches all the way along the bank|
|Looking down from the path at the top of the bank - you can see the mounds|
of chalk that have been dug out of the sett.
|There are lots of well used trails throughout the bank|
|2 entrance holes with tunnels leading off in different directions|

|Well used trails through the sett and off into the |
|Holes dug everywhere - presumably they were looking for food|
|Lots of logs were scratched and pulled apart where the badgers were looking|
The mud was all gone and the moss seems to have had it's moment - it's all still there, but was all looking a bit dried up!
Two large deer shot across the path ahead of me (but I wasn't quick enough with the camera) and the great tits seemed to follow me through the woods, peeping at me.
I walked a bit further and spotted a rotten tree stump, that seemed to have something turquoise growing on it. I looked closer and realized it was home to moss, stinging nettles, black fungus, lichen, turquoise stuff and some green slime. There were also loads of little holes dug into the rotten wood, presumably by mice. That one rotten tree stump was home to so many things!
