Improved Patch Otter Sighting

I was very lucky on Sunday to connect again with the local mother & her two cubs.

I've stopped at that bridge over 100 times this year so still a less than 2 per cent success rate. But nevertheless I'll take those odds to try to repeat these views!!

All the best

Paul

Very nice Paul, lucky you.

I found a dead one on the banks of the Trent in Notts about 20 years ago, AFAIK, they're still not established in the county?

Worth stopping. Well photographed.
Percy Verance pays.

Love the middle image, seems to be standing horizontally taking a bearing.

Just did a quick check on t’ interweb Andy, and it seems they have returned to Notts, Attenborough Nature Réserve for example.

Cheers
