Otter Tracks - Photo  Copyright 2003 Dorset Otter Group

The otter tracks shown above were photographed at Radipole Lake Nature Reserve in Weymouth, Doset, and were kindly supplied by the Dorset Otter Group

You can see by the two pence coin alongside that otter prints are only about 6cms wide by around 8 or 9cms long.

It's rare to see a complete otter track like this unless the ground is very soft. Often only four of the five toes will leave an impression.
