A weasel A weasel!!!!

I am soooo excited.  This is only the second time I’ve ever seen one and there it was carrying a mouse across our veg patch only a couple of metres from the living room window.

People say that the main difference between stoats and weasels is that stoats have a black tip to the tail.  While that’s true, the most striking difference was the size.  The weasel was properly diddy. We get a lot of stoats here so I’ve got used to them, in fact, I saw one today behind the caravan.  It was being chased off by next door’s chickens.  No eggs for you today Mr stoaty stoat.

    Your last edition, reminded me of the stoats I used to see when I worked at YSP in Wakefield. On occasions in spring a stoat would run under the wardens porter cabin with a live baby rabbit. The noise it made was horrible! I think may be it was brought alive so the stoat kittens could practice their killing techniques, a gruesome thought I know.
