Otter Spraint

October 8, 2021

Spraint (otter poo) is the most obvious sign that otters are in the river.  We find it regularly under a bridge on Flitton Moor, but usually well under the bridge where it is too dark to photograph well. 

On Tuesday 5th October this spraint was spotted between the bridge & the river – allowing me to take this picture.  Otter spraint has a distinctly fishy smell so is fairly easy to identify. 

River otters are ellusive creatures as they are rarely seen in daytime.
