Winter’s field work

Posted by on July 20, 2012

Over the last three weeks in my attempt to survey the Peninsula for any and all signs of otter activity, I have had the great pleasure to be out and about hiking Table Mountain and surrounding areas in the heart of winter. Despite being completely soaked most days due to rain, hail and wind I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Peninsula a bit more by getting lost in the mist, meeting porcupines in the vlei, falling into icy rivers, discovering chameleons and being chased through a golf course. Looking forward to what next weeks field days hold!

    Hi Nicola,
    Our property is at the confluence of the Liesbeek River and Newlands Stream (Mill Stream, Lekkerwater – not absolutely sure what the correct name is) and this morning there was quite a large amount of otter skat on the lawn down on the river bank. We see it from time to time and its always exciting. Would love to spot the otter. What is the most likely time that they would be around?
    Jean
