Stoat or weasel

Three days ago I saw a small creature running across our front porch. When I went to look more closely (having thought it either a rat or a mouse) I found it was either a stoat or a weasel – I really can’t tell them apart. I have never seen one here before. Are they common around the river?

    I think that if you thought that it might be a rat, then it was probably a Weasel, since a Stoat is considerably larger. I believe that Weasels are fairly common around countryside locations.
