At the bottom of this image, 3/4 in from the left, are a couple of pieces of animal droppings. It smelt sweet and tasted of fish, so it is definitely otter spraint; it’s too small for mink, and their droppings smell and taste pretty rancid.
The spraint is right outside a hole Mike Averill and I dug under a big old oak tree, right on the bank of the North Pond Chain. We were hoping the cavity under the oak, with its front and back doors, would attract an otter; it looks like it has done just that. The oak tree is a short stones throw from the Living Otter Holt.
