Watch how the stoat mother grasps each kit by the scruff of its neck to carry them one by one to her new location.

Stoats on the move

Stoats move their young frequently to keep them safe from predators. These nest changes happen so very fast there are rarely recorded. But cameras hidden inside this nest chamber reveal this secretive behaviour. These kits are just over a month old and cumbersome. But they become submissive, allowing their bodies to go limp when carried in this way.

Bandita the stoat

This stoat mum lives in my garden. Named Bandita, she became famous after featuring in a BBC TV documentary on the nature of weasels. I continue to film her story and upload the best of the footage onto my blog. Follow it here: /


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!
