Mink Spotted Near Byrne Creek

When we were salvaging fish from the Byrne Creek spawning habitat sediment pond today, a small, dark mammal about the size of large house cat trotted out of the bush, scampered along the edge of the sediment pond, checked us out, and then disappeared back into the bush. I managed to get a couple of shots from a distance, and looking at them at home, it appears to have been a mink!
