Badgers in Pembrokeshire – meles meles

These short-legged digging omnivores are surely one of most controversial mammals in any rural community, due to the alleged connection with bovine TB. Under the Protection of Badgers Act, 1992, these shy crepuscular creatures (active at dawn and dusk) are rarely spotted but leave traces of their activities and five-toed claw-marks around their setts, in field and hedgerow edges. It is an offence to “…kill or injure a badger, or to damage, destroy or interfere with its sett or allow a dog to enter.” Illegal baiting continues and it is estimated to account for about 10,000 badger deaths annually. In Pembrokeshire, the Sealyham dog breed was originally developed for badger culling.

Story of our Princess Nest, as imagined by Snorkelfish. 

A Protector.

There are those who will talk of my girl in those now far off times and think they have the truth of what came about.

Some still talk of ‘Poor Nest’, ‘Helpless Nest’. They still choose to see my lady as a victim.
Let me tell you the truth of it. You will not hear better from anyone else.

Autumn climbing in Pembrokeshire

Autumn climbing Pembrokeshire - The Climbing Company

With the bird bans recently lifted, I was desperate to do some new routes and explore some un-climbed sections of cliffs that are off limits for much of the summer. I’d done a handful of new routes at Pointz Castle, north of Newgale, last year and now there’s scope for loads more.

Autumn climbing Pembrokeshire – new routes.

Motorcycling Pembrokeshire

Motorcycling Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire offers some fabulous roads to ride on. In fact, there’s a total of 1200 miles of riding pleasure in the county and most of it allows traffic free enjoyment of some fast, winding routes with good quality surfaces. If you are a competent rider, there are plenty of challenges to test your skills and provide plenty of thrills. There are straights that demand an open throttle, heading into big open vistas, coast roads that tempt the unwary to take too long a glance out to sea and descents into wooded valleys that will check the smoothness in your gear changes and your brakes.
