Otter hunt continues

I think I am getting closer to achieving my goal of photographing an Otter in the Forest of Dean area.


Spotted two of these this morning which I think have to be Otter spraints.

Also saw a distant view of a dipper.


And a fleeting glimpse of electric blue.



This photo was taken through glass at a zoo in France.. The European Zoo at Chize, a very good zoo with a huge amount of space, but still a zoo.


Recently I have spent a bit of time on the banks of the river Wye hoping to catch a glimpse of a wild Otter. I have seen Kingfishers, Grey Wagtails, Cormorants  etc but no Otters.

Does anyone have a spot they could recommend where there is a possibility of catching a view of these wonderful animals?
