We’ve recently had a report and some excellent photos of a mink seen along the Foss well into town. They are vicious non-native predators which will deplete our fragile water vole population – though they are generally seen off by otters. If you see one, please let us know. Hopefully this was a visitor – they do travel a long way – but if not we’d like to know.
They really do need eliminating and we will need to report their presence if frequent.
