If you’re a BBC Springwatch twitcher, you probably watched Simon King in Wales last week. He and the team tried to get footage of Polecats in the wild, but were beaten by the masked mustelid’s wily ways. And Simon told viewers he had never seen a wild Polecat.
But now, Simon King’s ambition has been realised by Berkshire Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) at their College Lake reserve in Bucks. Baby polecats were spotted and the BBC Springwatch team rushed out there from Wales! Featured on Monday’s edition of Springwatch.
