    identify this paw print

    Hi, just walked out my front gate and noticed this Attachment 54921 I've had a look on Google but can't seem to identify it.

    First guess Otter, or again looking at the size, smaller mustelid, what coin is it?

    Sorry ment to say, 1p, that was the closest I could narrow it down too was an otter. It was the only print on the mud. Little surprised if it is an otter at the front of my home have had them at the back couple couple of times when the lake rises.

    To try and identify the habitat, I have a large hill in front of my home which there is a beck either side of my house which runs if we have heavy rain then running into lake at the back of my house.

    You would be surprised at how small a stream / ditch they will work there way down!! I have seen them in some very funny places over the years!

    Is it not too small for an otter? Size of a 1p could it be a mink

    Oops missed the 1p piece thought it was a 2p! Deff to small for a otter I would say

    I would say stoat or thereabouts, it's way too small for otter, and I'd say mink too, plus, you can normally see webbing on the afore mentioned, so smaller mustelid would be my thoughts.
