Hi Lord Paul - if it is a mink I shall be very disappointed and just a bit surprised. As you know I do a lot of work with the BA conservation volunteers and up at How Hill we have been on the look out for some time. We have equipment out on the marshes to show tracks and so far have not seen any evidence of mink. Now otters - thats different and we reckon because they have quite large territories that there are otters almost, if not, everywhere. There is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that the two don't mix too well and that the steady rise in the otter population is keeping the spread of mink down, or at least slowing it considerably. So on balance probably an otter or so I hope!!!
Can I just add - for Richard this is meant - the pictures I have put on, on this thread are some how getting mixed up very badly.
May be because of same file names ????
The first picture on this thread is no longer mine ???
As The Commodore pointed out above, something is going not quiet right.
Marshman, my first picture - where ever that has now gone - was taken just a few yards down stream from my moorings at Wayford Bridge. Leigh (tuppence) and I saw what I would think would have been a Mink - swimming near Hunsette Mill near Easter this year.
I too hope it was an Otter but have my doubts.
