A Very Interesting Day

Yesterday I attended an 'Otter day' at Winchester, Hampshire, provided by the Sussex Wildlife Trust. The day was hosted by Fran Southgate, Sussex Otters and Rivers Partnership, Sussex Wildlife Trust. The morning was very informative and it is not everyday that you spend time sniffing Otter-poo! During the afternoon we walked along the river side searching for signs of otter activity and talking amongst ourselves. A wide variety of people were attending they day, for various different reasons and it made interesting conversation. Here are two pictures that I took of Otter signs; the first is Spraint (Otter POO!) and the second is an Otter print.



During the walk we also saw a Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly; the first I have seen this year.
