Photo of the Month
August 2002

Mink - Photo  Copyright 2002 Tony Margiocchi
Nestbox Raid by Tony Margiocchi

This photo was sent in by Tony Margiocchi. He used a Nikon F100 with an 80-200 F2.8 Nikon lens. The film used was Fuji 800. Here's how he got the shot...

"Once the beast was up the tree I was able to quickly run under the tree and shoot up at it. The nest box is located on 'The Old Moat Nature Reserve' and runs alongside the River Hiz. The reason for my being there was to snap some young kestrels being fed by their parents, sadly the fledglings are all dead and the parents have not been seen since the mink showed up. We have not seen any water voles this year either and the mink is probably the reason."
