SHRIEK..is it a ghost?

I went out late for my run tonight leaving the house at about 8.20 pm and decided that I would do most of it off road via woodland paths and byways!!!

Most of the run was pretty good, I twisted my ankle at about 3 miles along a rutted, unlit path but I have had worse and have run it off now and then ran along the side of the local crematorium and all I could hear were rustles and squeaks, I assume that it was a fox...I hope.

Then off the top of my head I decided to go through the local nature reserve which has a raised board walk (4 railway sleepers width) under the cover of trees so pitch black but with my fast fading headtorch it posed no problems as my path was lit from 0-20 feet ahead.

I was half way along the walk when I saw two yellow/green eyes in my beam. Thinking it was a cat or dog I thought it would ignore me or jump off the boards... but it still came running at me and as we got closer I realised it was a badger and neither of us was going to move off the boards (there is a 1-2 foot drop either side) as we got within a few feet of each other it sniffed and shrieked at me and then leapt into the undergrowth. I then saw it was an ENORMOUS albino badger...I nearly pooped myself it honestly looked like a white apparition.
