From Badgers to Nighthawks: Adventures of a Wildlife Ranger
“And they say animals don’t have a sense of humour! Accuse me of being anthropomorphic if you must but I have had too many animal experiences not to believe that they are sentient beings with feelings and emotions.” Malcolm J Ingham worked as a Ranger & Wildlife Officer for over 30 years during which time he, along with his wife Ann, formed the Wirral Wildlife Rehabilitation Unit. Here he tells his stories, some sad, some hilarious of his efforts to become a ranger, of confronting badger diggers and assisting the Police, The National Wildlife Crime Unit & RSPCA Special Operations Unit in the battle to combat wildlife crime, particularly badger digging and baiting. From the trials and tribulations of a badger release, chasing a deer in Birkenhead, rescuing a Saker falcon off an Iranian ship to returning an American Nighthawk to Belize to name but a few!
