    Came across these last night on a small mud bank next to a stream that runs through a small gully on one of my permissions.
    Be around 1.5 - 2 inch's broad. The stream is maybe 5ft wide with the odd pool, maybe 18 - 24 inches at its deepest. Never seen any fish in it though. The gully's whins provide cover for badgers and fox. On the second picture you can just make our a fifth toe on the right.
    I am thinking otter but am interested to know what you think.

    Usually with otters, you get a kind of 's' shaped mark as well, where their tail touches the ground

    Otter fits; five toes would be better

    Look like otter to me. But Im unsure with your sizing. 1.5" - 2" seems a tad big!!

    I think they look a bit doggie too. Here's a pic of some otter tracks I found a couple of months ago:

    Otters are big beasts and you can see where the web of the foot has broken the sand.
