Otter spotting Part II

Having failed to spot any otters at West Pond (despite multiple visits) - we decided to go to Putah Creek and test our luck there. We didn't spot any otters this time either, but Iain is convinced that he heard one in the bushes and we found trails in the grass made from a medium sized animal (otter?). Who knows. We did spot another great animal on our walk though - a beautiful owl! But it was too fast (or we were too slow?) - so no pictures to prove it. We won't give up our otter spotting so keep an eye open for Part III :-)


  1. Maria, you have a blog! And I'm just now discovering it.
    Also, I saw otters at the arboretum. Well, it could have been the same one multiple times.

  2. We love otters! You must take us to the otter! :-)

  3. I haven't been to the arboretum in a long time, so I'm not sure if he's still there. From talking to a woman who has been walking in the arboretum every day for like 30 years, the time to see otters is in the winter. Too many people are there in the summer and spring and the otters get scared and hide.
