Stoats and Weasels out for the Summer!
Many of you regular photographers will be pleased to know that stoats and weasels are back in the enclosures by the snakes and polecats.
These pens should allow for better photographic opportunities of these small mustelids, as they did a couple of years ago.
A young male and female stoat are found in the first two pens you come two, of which the male in particular is very friendly and curious when people are around. Next to them is one of our elder female polecats who is nursing two kits. Then continuing up the path towards the corvids, the last two pens are home to our new and very friendly weasel.
Good luck to you all in trying to get some nice photos, of course stoats and weasels are still on display in our Hedgerow section too where our female weasel is hopefully expecting young within the coming weeks.
