Since the sighting of the Otter at Toad Holes Beck I have made daily visits not only to the top pond but also the two lower ponds. Sadly there has been no further sightings in our area. This leads me to think that the elusive Otter may have been passing through or commutes to our waterways and now may be anywhere in the south Bradford area. I am scaling down visits to casual ones but would urge anyone out walking to keep an eye out for special visitor.
Moving on I have now finished visible migration in our recording area for this year. However, recently there has been a nice influx of Goosander passing through with 13 on the 30/11, 2, 3/11 and 1 on the 5/12.
