A polecat in the garden in Sweden


As you know my son John and family live in rural Sweden. John filmed this polecat in the garden this evening. What a lovely creature.

They are wonderful animas aren't they.
Their numbers are increasing slowly in the UK mainly in the North though.

My friend lives in the countryside near Glasgow and she sees them.

That's fascinating. We saw one just once in our garden outside Stirling many years ago. It had darker fur. We had no idea what it was until we looked it up!

Great to see wildlife in our gardens! Shame we can't watch videos on GoY. It would have been interesting to see it wander around the garden.
