Whisper & Stuart Stoat Are Ready For Outdoors | Rescued & Returned to the Wild | Robert E Fuller

Whisper & Stuart, the stoat kits I’ve been caring for, have taken the next step towards a life in the wild. At 9 weeks old they were climbing, fighting, and playing with increasing confidence – an indication that they were ready for this next adventure – and so this week I moved them to a new outdoor enclosure!

You can watch more on the stoat kits’ rehabilitation journey in this series: and find more rescue films here:

Catching the stoats

Catching them wasn’t easy. Stuart, who has had minimal contact with me since he arrived here, hid under a blanket. Watch this short film to see the trouble I had coaxing him out!

New stoat enclosure

The new enclosure has branches and a drystone wall for these young kits to explore. It also has a warm, cosy, nest rigged with cameras so that I will be able to watch their progress from my art studio. From now on the plan is to get them to become more ‘stoat’ and less ‘human’ and so I intend to be as hands-off as possible.

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.
