Otter visiting

I think the otter has been visiting our pond again. I think I saw a mink swimming across the pond about a month ago, but now there is a regular track across the field from the river to the pond and evidence of the grass being flattened – similar to the pattern a couple of years ago when the otter was here. Not yet seen any spreint however.

    The flattened grass suggests that it is probably the dog Otter.
    It has been quite active around your area lately (see photo’s in post above) and is probably a metre in length, head to tail.
    Apparently there are numerous Signal Crayfish in the river and it is therefore finding plenty of food at the moment. I hope that you are fortunate enough to get a glimpse of him at some point in time.
