Mustelid hits and mustelid misses

Only yesterday I was telling a young naturalist friend that in 2012 I had, barely believably, seen neither a weasel nor a stoat.

Today, in separate incidents, I saw two stoats.

Still alas, on my fourth attempt, I saw no otter this evening. A friendly fellow, who has been there every time I have, was by the river again tonight. Last night he saw an otter, while I was leading a nightjar walk.

Ho hum.

New in two hedgerows today
