This is the story of a family of stoats living in my garden in North Yorkshire. An intensive five-year study into the secret world of stoats I have been watching six generations of a remarkable stoat dynasty for five years now. I follow these little known mammals from the moment the kits are born inside their animal nests to their first experiences of winter snows, getting to know each one individually, giving names to most.

Weasels and stoats are among the world’s smallest predators, and yet they figure large in the human psyche, appearing in legends and myths from around the world. Stories of their prowess date back to our ancient times when they were associated with witches and believed to be omens of death. The ancient Macedonians believed that seeing a weasel was a good omen, whilst the ancient Greeks held the superstition that a weasel was an embittered bride […]

These little brown mustelids are both fast and ferocious, with sinuous bodies and short legs. But there are a few key indicators to look for if you see a tiny, slim brown mammal slip through the undergrowth at speed. Black tip to the tail: […]

Welcome to my stoat cam where I collate the best clips of stoats from the cameras hidden inside and outside nest boxes in my garden. I’ve been watching stoats in my garden for four years now and have come to know the different characters well. I’ve even got nick names for my favourites: look out for Bandita, the female stoat that hit TV headlines at the beginning of the year after turning white in time […]

On the wooded slope of a valley that sweeps away from my home and gallery in Thixendale, grows one of England’s rarest species: a magnificent old elm tree. This big, beautiful, tree is one of just a handful of living elms left in the country. At one time these grand trees dominated the English landscape.

I’ve been invited into the studios of BBC Springwatch for their indepth analysis programme, Unsprung. I was asked to bring in an idea for my ideal ‘fantastical animal or animal of the future’. I’m going to suggest a ‘Super Stoat’. Stoats are one of the few species that will kill rats – and rats are threatening to destroy one of my favourite species, the penguins of South Georgia. If I could breed a ‘super stoat’, […]
