Unwelcome Visitor

I had a nasty surprise yesterday when an unwelcome furry little friend suddenly dashed out of the reeds on Dunces Corner Pond and had a go at one of the Moorhens. At first it was just a black furry blur but as I waited the visitor swam out in front of me allowing me to get a couple of pictures.

I’m awaiting confirmation but I’m pretty sure its an American Mink, a pretty savage predator especially for waterfowl.
