A stoat investigating a red squirrel feeding site at Paxton House near Berwick upon Tweed, North Northumberland. He hunted an area around the site and climbed over the log at which point I whistled at it to get his attention and to stop for a second, and that really all I had.... not more than a second or two. Light was very poor and was taken with a Canon 7d and 100-400L IS lens at 275mm, f6.3 for 1/125 second and ISO1600.

Alan, the feeding station isnt mine to move, I was just there as a guest however the grounds staff have been made aware. Theyre not really a threat to the squirrels anyway. Theres enough other small rodents available for them to feast on. Unfortunately there are a few feeders around which attract mice etc which in turn attract other predators. The squirrels are quite cautious and have 'safe' routes in and out of the feeding areas. Our wee reds are well looked after! Many thanks for the comments tho.
