Cloudy day and another otter
Off to the river, where the wind's off my back. Two over the far side, one down the margin. Clouds darken ominously, but the rain holds off.
The club chairman appears and we have a mardle. As his 4x4 bounces off down the road, an otter appears in the middle of the river - the first I've ever seen on this part of the system. It's the third otter I've seen in the Fens in a fortnight.
I don't want to blame these once-maligned creatures for another runless day, as it reaches the far bank reeds and disappears from view.
