Mink have now been spotted on the Upper Bure near Horstead. I know they have been sited on the river Ant near Wayford Bridge and also at Strumpshaw Fen, but just how widespread in Norfolk are these nasty little critters and what damage are they likely to do? Mink
I do recall hearing somewhere that otters won't abide a mink anywhere near them and will do the removal job on your behalf. But otters are also the bane of anglers I believe, so that's not much help, is it!!

Karen...Who was there first the otter or the angler...definatley the otter, absolutely love them, best thing about being a fisherman is you get plenty of otter moments but always seems the case ...no camera. Darren..Think it was maybe last year a photo appeared on here of a mink swimming across the river Ant, the folks who took it thought it was an otter by mistake. So just goes to show people can be mislead if they dont know the difference....Stevie..Otter lover.
About 40 years ago whilst fishing on Hickling I was lucky enough to have a Otter 30 feet away from the dingy. The Otter was laying on his back with what looked like a fresh water muscle on his chest and was beating it with a stone. After he had gone I realized I'd sat there for several minutes watching, yet my camera had remained firmly in my bag.
how can such a sleepy paradise create such passion.
