Stoats are like buses...

You wait for ages (in my case YEARS) to see stoats and then suddenly they all come at once.

After my post-work run today, I was once again treated to my second sight (in ten days) of an adult stoat racing across the country lane that I was warming down on, with a rabbit kit in its gob.

Ten days. Two stoats with rabbit in gob. (I've NEVER seen a stoat with rabbit before in my life).

 

Was it the same stoat I hear you cry?

 

No. Even though they were less than 1/4 mile apart - both stoats were clearly hot-footing it back to young with the rabbit - and both were heading at speed in completely opposite directions.

 

Now if only I had my camera on my runs!
