What is it carrying? Not a Water Vole, I hope.
recording wildlife with The Recorder's Year on www.hbrg.org.uk/TRY.html.
not a water vole, i think its on of its young it went back to get 7 more and some did not have fur on, it was very gentle with them and for that reason i think its her young
That is what I thought (and hoped!).
Although not good that we have 8 more American mink! Must have been amazing to see though.

The good news is since this photo was taken Otters have moved in and nobody has seen Mink in the area since the arrival of the Otters
Various studies have found that otters reduce mink populations. Bonesi and Macdonald's study is one of the main ones I think http://www.conservationevidence.com/individual-study.php?id=275
we should be doing more to help the otter then, would see alot of water vole when i was a kid but have none around for miles now all down to the mink!
