12 Days of Christmas – 2022

Day 5: The Irish Stoat

We’ve only twice captured a stoat on our trail cameras.

The first time we saw one, it was in full chase of a rat. It was all over fairly quickly (Stoat 1 : Rat 0).

This time the stoat was on its own looking over a bank, over which it disappeared.

Exactly 2 minutes later we see it wrestling with a prey item. After a brief tussle it heads off with its victim in its jaws. (Stoat 2: Rat 0)

Another vignette of life in the wild, giving us an insight into the daily drama being played out in the Purecamping woods. 🙂
