Working with wildlife doesn’t always go smoothly

SOMERSET-based animal rescue charity, Secret World Animal Rescue, works miracles every day with the endless variation of birds and animals that pass through the charity’s HQ at East Huntspill.

Every now and then something unusual happens, like the day I photographed staff member Nikki Hawkins playing mum to four young orphaned badger cubs who followed closely on their morning walk around the buttercup meadow.

Seconds after I took this photograph a roaring jet plane flew low right over our heads and scattered the badgers all over the place.

Nikki and I had to run around the field catching each one before we lost them in neighbouring woodland.
