18th October 2018… guess what… no Otters however a couple that I was talking to said they saw one yesterday.. This looks like a suitable Otter spot???
Anyway as you can see it was a lovely afternoon with the sun picking out the developing Autumn colours.
There was a Kingfisher up and down but preferred to perch well away from the bank.
The water was still flowing fast with quite a few apples floating down stream. In the river there was one brave little Moorhen.
Up and down the bank were three Robins chasing one another round and round, I don’t know if it was formation flying for fun or territorial disputes but the three of them kept it up for almost an hour with only brief stops for a rest. (The little dots visible to the left of the photo are not dirt on my lens they are midges)
And the good news was … today there were no fishermen in the water.
