Seen a Stoat?

In November a Council worker (keen  naturalist so we  are pretty confident he is right) saw a stoat on the northern edge of  the Meadow.

A section of the long grass  by the northern belt of trees was in the process of being cut for the year; which meant that inevitably some of the  vole population was being sacrificed for the greater good of the remaining very healthy population. Not only did we get Red Kites investigating the proceedings at close quarters, but a  stoat as well.

We  don’t know if it was a passing youngster looking for a new home or an established  stoat  who already had a ‘territory’ on site. Either way, welcome to the feast!
