I am sure that this is Mustela vison, but iSpot closes internet explorer, whenever I try to click on how sure I am.
Perhaps it is telling me I am wrong and not to be so stupid!?!!
As iSpot is not interested in my ID, I have agreed with Syrphus (as usual!).

Just wait for the Willow-Chiffs to come in and that will change ...

Agree American mink - chocolate brown colour and 'unflattened' tail. Originally from escaped/released fur farm stock. Otters will fight them and even eat them (evidence from mink fur in otter scats). Let the otters take control! :-)

There are no European Mink in the UK - just the introduced/released American.
I saw there were two species and plumped for the closer one!
Lovely photos just unfortunate it is a problem.

Excellent photos for identification. Note how it has a long, thinish body with short legs. Also the uniform chocolate brown/black coat all over the body - otters have a paler underside as do stoats and weasels.
