Stoatally Speechless

 We had another day at Hornsea.  It was a bit misty at first, but the day improved.  There were a lot more small birds in the woodland than a fortnight ago.  We had excellent views of Great Spotted Woodpeckers and Treecreepers in the morning, with an even better view of a Treecreeper after lunch.  However, the 'bird' of the day was a Stoat, which was hunting a small rodent right along the edge of Hornsea Mere.
