Stoats in Nidderdale

Over the years I've seen quite a few stoats in my area of rural North Yorkshire. I would be delighted to get a photo of one however it is highly unlikely that I will ever get one. I've seen them darting across roads in and out of dry stone walls, once I saw one dragging a rabbit. My wife saw a pair doing one of the famous stoat ';dances' a couple of miles from here - they were on the side of the road as she was driving by.
Incidentally I've never seen a mink and have no desire to do so !
