Both our breeding pairs of polecats have given birth, and the kits are at that age where they are beginning to come our and explore... although very slowly.
Cassie is currently off display with 5 little ones to look after. Oriel, above, is on display in our main polecat enclosure looking after 4 kits.
The kits have so make the occasional appearance, but are still a little shy like this one hiding behind the grass.
You can see they are catching up to mum in size very quickly, and this little lad quickly dragged her back in to their den rather than have to come out in to the open even more.
Best time to see them will be around their feed times... currently first thing in the morning, and just after the badger talk in the afternoon.
And for you members out there, don't forget our annual Members Evening this Saturday the 1st of July, 5pm- 8pm.
