Members of the same animal family as stoats, wolverines and badgers, I discovered some fascinating facts about these secretive creatures. 1. Weasels & Stoats Are Good Swimmers They love water. In fact, they can swim and dive underwater like mini otters […]

This meant I could record events inside the nest at Salt End Chemical Park and relay live images of the action via a mobile internet connection back to my gallery in Thixendale, a full 32 miles away!  The nest, located 100ft up a grain silo, is well established.
