Not sure about that one Gerard ive seen thousands of otter tracks and that looks more like a badger track? Do you have anymore of the sequence?

Well you may be right, I agree that it is not a classic. But it was on the bank above a fishpond with a trail leading FROM the water. And what about the size ? What features make you think it is a badger ? Cheers, Gerard.

sorry Gerard for not getting back to you i have been busy elsewhere. I hope you dont think i was being to critical as your site is great. i think it is mainly the almost straight line of the toes and shpe of the pad. an otter toes are much more characteristically tear shaped and splay around a much more uneven pad. a badgers pad is like a kidney bean. if you look on my blog there are some otter tracks in the snow from December 2010. hope this helps cheers Kevin
