The cameras have been installed by Alncom, a rural broadband and IT solutions specialist, after the landowner discovered a badger sett.
Managing director Stephen Pinchen said: “One of our clients discovered the sett and wanted to capture the badgers in their natural environment from the comfort of their home but without disturbing the badgers and their cubs.”
A badger sett usually consists of a network of tunnels and numerous entrances.
The largest setts are spacious enough to accommodate 15 or more animals with up to 300 metres of tunnels and as many as 40 openings.
The footage Alncom have captured shows approximately 15 badgers outside the sett with possibly more not in view of the camera.
“We set up a CCTV camera that we linked to a nearby relay site, so we were able to connect the camera to high speed broadband to enable us to stream the footage so people can watch anywhere in the world,” explained Stephen.
“The team at Alncom have found themselves regularly checking the live stream on the sett to see if there’s any activity.
“We believe that it could be a must-have tool for rural businesses such as holiday cottages who wish to show what wildlife is around them and what could be viewed from their cottage, or, for now online!”
If you would like to watch the badgers, they are their most active at dusk so the best time to see the badgers is around 8.45pm.
