Stoat Carrying Young

This was taken last year the RSPB were adapting a generator shed, which already housed a family of stoats, she has obviously had enough of the coming and going of workmen and the general disturbance to her home, so she decided it was time to move. She is seen in my shot carrying a kitten in her mouth at quite a speed and to those that are familiar with Elmley RSPB she is chasing across the paddock adjacent to the toilet block, as you can see they are quite advanced in growth. I mistook what she was carrying at the time to be a young rabbit but Matt, the under warden pointed out to me the feet are of a young stoat. got it wrong again!
