Otter sighting

Taunton and Bridgwater Canal
Tuesaday 28th February 2012

Walking to work this morning, I noticed my first Skylark of the Spring over a field near the Canal, singing and hanging quite high in the sky. Brought a real touch of Spring. Lovely to hear the first singing Skylark. If that was not enough the return walk back from work along the Canal close to home at dusk brought my first Otter sighting what more it had a fish. It was a real surprise, I know they had been seen along this part of the canal, but it was great to see. Now I want to see more.


  1. Oh, good for you. Nothing delights me more than coming upon otters!! Especially when I'm out in my kayak. They don't skip a beat, but they swim right by, lifting themselves way up out of the water to peer at me!! So funny!

  2. Hi Karen,

    Kyakinng and watching Otters sounds amazing, I envy you. What amazing wildlife you have to see.
