Jim still hasn’t seen an otter BUT

He has seen scarlet elf cup! It has just started to pop up in its usual place along the path to the woodland hide.

The first of the snow drops have also started to flower on the edge of the Centre car park.

And a very lucky visitor sitting in Goosander Hide at lunchtime today noticed something dive under the water which at first glance could have been mistaken for a duck…..

But when it came back up a little while later there was no mistaking that it was in fact an otter!
