A fascinating observation on June Solstice

Last night we were returning back home following a meeting at our local Christian congregation. As we reached our home in Hollingdean at about 10am I saw a medium sized Badger walking along the pavement in front of our home and it ran up through the steps to our next door neighbours garden. We see cats every day and on most days we see foxes either on the road or in our gardens – indeed there was one sleeping in my garden this morning when I went to move the bin. But given that we are in a residential area in our City it is very surprising to see a Badger on the pavement. I have never seen one in our community and last night on 21st June was the shortest night at the beginning of our Summer with June Solstice. I wonder if I may see the Badger again? I probably will but it did seem a very significant day to see something so unusual.
