Badger Sett Creation and closure, Swansea, Autumn 2010

KCM have built from scratch a new badger sett near Swansea to provide a home for a group of badgers which needed to relocate due to imminent development works. This work was undertaken under licence from Natural England and under the supervision of the client’s ecologist. The new sett was inhabited by the badgers within 8 weeks and we have now undertaken a sett closure, using an excavator to level the site and have covered the area with chain link to ensure that the area is not re-colonised. This is one of several Badger related projects undertaken by KCM this year.
