Meet Bertie, he is a badger and he is very happy to meet you 🙂 Bertie is a very sociable creature and loves to be out and about in the woods, fields & mountains of Arann with his friends. He lives in Arann Forest, in a sett, with all his family. Bertie is very neat and tidy, loves to be organised and he is never, ever late! “Punctuality” he says “is the mark of a good badger!” I think I will have to take his word on that one 🙂 Bertie makes regular contributions to Arann’s blog, and you can read all about it here!
