Otters in Cod Wood

written by Matt Parkins

Cod Wood otter spraintThis otter spraint was deposited on a mossy bank next to a stream in Cod Wood. It’s been there for a while and the rain has exposed some of the contents. Among the remains you can see a number of shiny carapaces which are possibly from diving beetles. These snacks form part of the diet of otters when they are very hungry!
