A family of stoats living in my garden

Taken from my wildlife cameras, this film combines a year of video clips that follow this ermine stoat and her young family.

Tracking down a female stoat named Bandita

Bandita moved her stoat kits several times during their early days and keeping track of them was quite a feat. Follow the story as we watch her carry them one by one from nest to nest and then see what happens when the kits are old enough to follow their mother through the garden.

Watch the stoat kits grow

The stoat kits quickly become playful and adventurous and we get to see them tumbling about in their nest and exploring the steps in my garden before eventually curling up exhausted from their day’s play to sleep with Bandita.

Identifying the stoat characters

It isn’t long before the individual characters of Bandita’s kits emerge. Meet Doc, with his broken tail, and Olga, who has incredible skills on the trampoline, and a male who can climb like a ninja.

Bandita – stoat turns white for winter

Bandita is a very rare ermine stoat and each winter she transforms from chestnut brown to a pure white. As the year comes to a close watch her begin her transition.


I am a British wildlife artist and filmmaker on a mission to share my love for wildlife with the world. As well as creating detailed animal film and art portraits, I promote wildlife tours around the world and do all I can to help conserve and protect wildlife here at my home in Yorkshire. I hope that by putting nature in the frame I can foster a deep love for wildlife amongst my followers.

Of course, you may like to purchase my artwork which you can find on my website: Many of my paintings are portraits of the wonderful characters you watch here!
