WOW, you lucky people!
Great pictures Gaz, thanks for sharing them with us.:thanks2:
Had heard there were otters back - whereabouts exactly did you see it?
Pm is fine if you'd rather not say on forum - I live just outside Thetford and would like to know A friend of mine works for the BTO and she said she had seen signs of otters.
We've canoed up and down that bloody river countless times.
We've seen grass snakes swimming, fish, swans and even a teenage ninja turtle, but never an otter!
You lucky, lucky barsteward!:Laughing:
Well done Gaz!:thumb:
we first saw the otter on the river bank near icelands. we then followed it down the river to the bridge next to the floating restaurant opposite the dads army statue
hope this helps
Know the area well! will go and stake out the river and see what I can see. Thanks
Very rude of me not to say in the previous post :Blush:- lovely pictures you have taken!
We stayed here Grange Farm camping Stoke Ferry
Last year and saw otters on the water at the camp site.
Gaz brilliant pictures again, did you see post Jaws put on asking if anyone had pictures of the Bash that He could have on a CD as he did not have his camera
About a month ago we had two young otters on our pond, they ate loads of our fish ! :Sad: Nice to see but not here please. Good photos thanks for posting
We parked just over the river from that boat over the three point bridge to the chippie, then sat by the river not a sign
mustta been too busy scoffin chips :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Well done - I'm still waiting to photograph a live otter in the wild. Have seen one or two deceased ones at the roadside in Charente-Maritime and an intriguing trail of bubbles in a channel on the Ile de Re but they don't count.
The otters at Thetford have become quite famous, they even featured on the first episode of this year's Springwatch. I was there on Tuesday but didn't see one unfortunately.
Looked But No Luck
In our Thetford nothing perhaps
a little brown thing that could be a pup:Rofl1:
Great photos Gaz, what we like about it is.........................................:Wink: You said you was going to try and get a picture and you did. :thumb:
Bet your glad we never came for a walk with you and Julie, :Wink: my size 11 gives everything time to hide. :Rofl1::Rofl1:
:thumb: Bob and Jane.
Amazing! We're going to the Shetlands in a few weeks in the hope of seeing one or two...could just come to Theford and save on costs for sure!
this was the 3rd time in about 2 months that I have tried to get photos of the otters. I was just lucky this time.
