Again I went hunting the river otter and again I found a different aquatic mammal than the one I was looking for.
I though I had him this time, from a distance it was hard to tell.
Then a loud slap and a splash told me that it was not the otter.
A beaver came swimming up along the row of willows. They make a snuffling sound as they swim, they sound a bit like a rooting pig.
They've been doing quite a job on the willows, before long there will be none left.
This is some of what I have seen in my part of our world last week. To see more views from around our world go to Our World, Tuesday, hosted for us by Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia and Sandy.
