Otter Tracks

Last week Little Owl and I were down by the river. It’s still looking pretty sodden down there following the summer deluge. The vegetation is making a come back but it’s mainly the most pervasive species. The wild flowers haven’t recovered. All we found were lots of herb robert, scattered tormentil, a few sprigs of common ragwort and some patches of hardheads (knapweed). Something we did spot however, were otter tracks on a sandy patch of river bank. The excitement of the discovery was lost on Little Owl who just looked at me quizzically as she tried out the new word, “Ot-ta.”
