Just thought I would let people know I believe I have spotted a mink, thought it was an otter at first but a closer look ot the photo and internet suggests it may be a Mink. any feed back would be great and may be something for the wardens to look out for. I followed it heading towards the main hide from the feeders on the left hand side ditch.
Just hope it leaves the lapwing nests alone.
Fantastic photos! Did you take these yourself?
Sadly, you were right in thinking this was a mink. We do have otters that are seen frequently so keep an eye out!
In reply to Owain Hegarty - Assistant Warden:
Yes took them myself, just noticed I have put the wrong date on the bottom photo, should be 2012. I will definetely keep looking for the Otters, would the Otters outcompete the Mink for territory and habitat, hope they will.
