Yes Fisherman, saw the article. The photograph in the gazette tonight is the one taken from your garden.

It goes on to explain that Otters have been frequenting the Don since 2003 when droppings were found in Hedworth Dene. :eek:

It goes on to say that there is going to be a talk on the Otters in Jarrow Community centre in February.

Quote: A £28,500 grant will help make South Tyneside a real home from home – or, rather, holt from holt – for its growing otter population.


The money will be spent on creating habitats and even bridges for the fish-eating mammals, now thriving after fighting their way back from the brink of extinction.

Otters are being spotted in the borough increasingly often, included one seen trying to steal fish from a garden pond in Jarrow last month.

Hi fisherman, welcome to the site. Jarraman told me you two go way back.

So is this otter a regular visitor to your garden then? Presumably he's after the fish?, has he had any?
