Stoat (Mustela erminea)

Stoat Mustela erminea


As the stoat is perhaps one of my favorite British mammals I was really pleased to get this shot. I managed to call him towards me by making the sound of a distressed rabbit. Even so he surprised me by approaching in a large semi-circle and using the cover of a hedgerow. If you look closely you can see he has a couple of ticks on his left ear which I hope will come off. Strange that one of my least favorite creatures should be feeding off one of favorites!
