I've never seen any badgers  around the back garden but we do butt onto a mixed woodland and I have seen dead badgers on a nearby road so I suppose it's possible that they're the culprits.The bees are still busy in the exposed cells despite the torrential rain we had overnight. I will try to rig some protection against the weather but we do have another compost bin that they may eventually move to.

 

Thanks for all the replies guys

Our black plastic compost bin seems to have "exploded" whilst we've been away on holiday scattering a bumblebee nest across the patch of earth nearby. Is this likely to have been caused by the recent spell of hot weather or are there any predators which may have dug out the compost to get to the bees nest ? Thre are many smallish bees busy about the exposed cells of the nest and some larger bees exploring the open bin.
