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.
