so was walking the pup last night in the dark, I take a lamp with me when its late so's I don't fall down a fecking ditch I let the pup see the odd rabbit on the beam but that's all it comes to,
anyway I spotted a pair of eyes that I didn't know. now it was longish and brown I think. it looked to me like mink? stoat, weasel or maybe a pine martin. didn't get close enough haha.
I have my cage trap out at the place ive spotted it so hopefully I get sumthing.
so ive made my live cage trap at last, (takes me a long time to get round to things haha)
