I have been away on a vacation and decided to sit and try and get some shots of the wren, but on the otherside of the riverbank on the mud bank this stoat appeared, he disappeared, then 20 minutes later came back along the same stretch.

Wonderful shot of a beautiful animal. I've not heard of a stoat before. Looks to be in the Weasel family. Wait...my trusty dictionary says it's european ermine. Now...is that in the Weasel family. :-) Woody

I've never seen one either, and yes, it's in the weasel family...

Yes the stoat is from the weasel family, the weasel is smaller with a shorter tail.
