Saw a Stoat this morning (1 Viewer)

When I arrived at my local patch Birding thi morning I was walking and saw this creature zipping back and forth and I looked through my Binoculars and it was a Stoat. It was my second ever sighting of one on my patch and it's great to see something you're not expecting to see.

Nice. Not an easy animal to see in my experience, despite its relative abundance; haven't seen a live one in years. The most recent trace of a Stoat I've seen was a dead one a Buzzard was munching on last week, don't know if it caught the critter itself or not.
