Fly Flatts

This afternoon
4 Wigeon arrived mid afternoon with a single Teal. At one time they took off but returned then I saw a mammal type swimming across the Res'r, not much showing looked like a small log but it was moving too quickly so guessed it might be a Mink - but no, when it emerged onto the banking I was amazed to find it was a Stoat (black tail tip)!. I didn't even know they could swim but this individual swam right across the Res'r from one side to the other. Has anyone else seen Stoats or Weasels swimming?
2 more Teal
22 Lapwings
5+ Kestrels
No Wheatears today and just a few Mipits around and 1 Swallow >SW
