British Mammals

2014.08.12
pixel
I've decided to branch out and pester wildlife nationwide, I will still be uploading Epping Forest blogs but I will also venture further afield.

I can see you

Stoat - Mustela erminea
pixel
Muntjac deer don't have a fixed breeding season, unlike many other deer. Instead, they reproduce continually throughout the year. This small and exotic looking deer can be surprisingly hard to spot.
pixel
My first visit to Richmond Park - Red Stag
pixel
I thoroughly enjoyed my walk around the park.

With so many predators themselves, the average stoat lives a short life of just 1.5 years.

Mink - with no natural predators in the UK, their populations are thriving.

Fallow doe
pixel
Stoats are skilful predators, typically feeding on rabbits and small rodents. They hunt in a zigzag pattern, making use of features such as walls and hedgerows to provide cover, and to help them avoid detection by owls, larger carnivores and hawks.
pixel
Woodlands are the muntjacs preferred habitat, but they are increasingly found in gardens and even walking down streets
pixel
Polecats are solitary and predominantly nocturnal weasel-like animals. They produce a strong musky scent from anal glands when threatened, and this is also used to mark their territories. These streamlined predators can lock their jaws together so tightly it can be near impossible to prise them apart. Ferrets are the domesticated descendants of the polecat.

SADHYA Absolutely amazing how you manage to get such great shots of these elusive animals. (I know a 300mm lens does help) What a wonderful collection.

StillBill I'd like to follow but right now I'm light years behind you. I have a 300mm Tamron and waiting on a 70-600 Tamron
so that should help since that's the most I can afford.
