I thought I photographed an Otter on the Ant today.
When I looked at it on the PC I,m sure it is a Mink, but the size was VERY large indeed.
It mush have been at least 30" from nose to tail.

Have never seen any mink so large or am I wrong ??

EDIT " There could be a picture problem as this picture of a mink standing on dry ground is not the one I photographed as mine was swimming
Hope this doesnt lead to more confusion !!!!

Its a Mink for me Paul.

They can grow to a fair size.

A lake I fished a few years ago in Northampton had its wild fowl population decimated by an influx of Mink including half grown Cygnets.

If I were potantial Mink prey on the Ant I would be making an exit up the Bure  Wink

Hi Paul,

Having observed otters on the Ant and Sutton Broad for a couple of years now, I would say it's definitely an otter (IMHO). Especially given the size you report, mink are shorter and slimmer.

The fur doesn't look dense enough for a mink and the texture is wrong, I reckon it is an otter.

Blimy..... now I am confused as we just about have a 50 / 50 split!!

I have seen both but as this was slimmer than an Otter, didn't dive under water, had too bigger ears than an Otter I still think it is a Mink,

So heres another picture.

Still reckon it's an otter. Submit the pic to the NWT, they should be able to give you a definitive on it.
