I’m not too sure that “boing, boing” perfectly describes or heralds the arrival of spring or that a day after the vernal equinox we are right to proclaim the “spring is here”, however it is my birthday and has always traditionally been the start of spring in my family for more years than I care to count.

We were down at out Kent farm site this Saturday to deliver our Bushcraft Family Learning Day Course to some wonderful families. We always enjoy this course and judging from the comments on the feedback forms all the families did too!

We have recently been playing around with infrared wildlife and trail cameras in the Kent countryside and some privately owned land that we have access to and thought it would be nice to share the results on the Badger Bushcraft Blog.

A recent and rare morning off made for an early start to pack the Land Rover with a Inca, our Labrador Retriever, and a day sack with binoculars, camera, et al to journey to the south of The Swale for a long walk and a visit to the Oare Marshes Nature Reserve.

There has been no doubt that over the years duct and gaffer tape has certainly had a part to play in our adventures out of doors. Recently we started to look for different products for a variety of solutions and to get them in stock before they were needed.

We have been using Nite GlowRings since 2007 and they are a tremendously useful source of light and last longer, are smaller and in the long-term more cost effective and environmentally friendly the chemical glow sticks.

We have recently discovered a very interesting chap called Tim Daw who produces some products with some bold claims that includes "Unbreakable Boot & Shoe Laces" and “Unbreakable Starter Cords”. Badger Bushcraft will be putting these products to the test and featuring the results on the Kit – Tried and Test section of our blog.

After just over a year of owning and using the excellent BushLife Essentials Eco-Burner we have finally managed to get some pictures of this well designed and superbly manufactured piece of kit in action during a weekend in some woods near to our base here in Kent.

altDamsons (Prunus domestica subsp. Insititia) are hanging in large pendulous bunches here in Kent, a real Garden of England for the wild food forager, and in this Badger Bushcraft Wild Food Blog we will be using them to produce one of the best and tastiest hedgerow jams.

Recent inspiration from some friends meant we have decided to make some delicious seasonal fare with the Quince (Cydonia oblong) a pome fruit that looks like a mixture of both an apple and a pear. In this Badger Bushcraft Wild Food Blog we will show you how to make a simple yet scrumptious quince jelly.
