2 Canal Sightings

Not strictly in the Nature Reserve, but very close.

Wednesday around 8:15 – Just past the Haverbreaks bridge a good sighting of a kingfisher..  It has been active around this area for a good few days, but usually darts for a new perch a little further down the canal.  It is always uplifting to see one.

A little further along the canal towards the footpath through Flora, I noticed a line on bubbles in the canal.  I stopped expecting to see the usual brown rat surface, But to my surprise an otter poked it’s head out of the water, stared at me for a few seconds and then tumble dived back under the water, and made for the reeds at the bottom of one of the gardens, where it disappeared.

Made my day!
