Could not believe how tame it was.. we saw it trying to get into our bag of mackeral so we cut some of the heads off for it which it took away and stored... it then came back looking for more.

I saw one like that in edinburgh a couple of years back, it had a dark coat but it was pretty huge, about 3 times the size of your one and completely fearless as it lolloped past us.

I grabbed the dog and retreated pronto.

When I tried to get a piccy it had disappeared amongst the rocks.

It was otter sized but looked like a mink.

When I was at silverknowes I was watching the seabirds when a flipping albatross cruised up the shoreline, unmistakable because of its size and the way that they fly.

Didn't mention it to anyone because they're only meant to be in the southern hemisphere, I saw them a lot when I was at sea.

Then by accident I ran into this article a couple of years ago.

Albert the Albatross
A lovesick albatross has spent the last 40 years unsuccessfully looking for romance in Scotland, 8,000 miles away from his natural breeding grounds.

So I'm not a loony after all, it must have been Albert.

bit of luck meeting a friendly mink. one that lived in a wall in our local park a while ago, used to hurl out and attack walkers and cyclist. it was a big male, possibly protecting young?, but it was a vicious booger.
