My teen daughter took this pic at RSPB Saltholme today (which unbiased dad thinks is a cracker) -- is there ANY way of telling whether it is a stoat or a weasel, without seeing the tail? Thanks, even if the answer is "no"!Marc
It certainly is a cracker. Alan sees these quite a bit & may be able to help. The stoat is a lot bigger than the weasel, if thats any help. maybe the staff on the reserve would know?

Thanks, will ask the staff! In the meantime, this isn't as good a picture but might help with ID?
