I was having a lunch time walk on the trail behind the business park. I came to the spot on the trail where it passes right by the brook, and there’s a muddy bank just below. There was a small mammal trying to stay out of my line of sight behind a tree- as I moved to get a better look it scampered off down-stream. I got a really good look at it for a few seconds; in particular the long body, red fur and the furred tail with the black tip. Made for an easy identification when I got back to my desk- long tailed weasel.
Sadly, I didn’t have enough time to go for my phone. The picture is from Wikipedia.
