One American we don’t want over here!!

Down on the river yesterday and I thought at first I’d spotted an otter. When it swam up to the bank though I realised it was a mink. These are not a British native and were either released into the wild by “do-gooders” or were escapees from mink farms where they were bred for their fur. Now they live wild and can be devastating to local wildlife. I know it’s not their fault they are here and are just acting naturally but we really could do without them.
