Mink tunnel

Janet followed a mink along Great Brook in Bolton this morning. A few
sets of nice tracks on snow blown over ice, some sliding, then, in 2nd
photo, a tunnel. The hole in the middle of the pic is where it dove in,
then emerged a few feet later, as can be seen at the top of the photo.
How interesting to see how the deep snow affects the movement of these
animals. Mink sliding and tunneling, fisher struggling to stay on top,
and wee beasties taking big risks.
