Hoo Brook Wood Polecat.

This is a camera trapped image of a polecat taken in the Hoo Brook Wood.

I have improved contrast courtesy of pair of tights, provided by my wife, stretched over the infrared camera flash to reduce its intensity.

Having kept and used polecats as a lad, I have a soft spot for them, and I could tell many stories involving polecats and rats. This one is a real beauty.
