good sighting, Tom. back to the comment you made as to are the otters you see in Hickman's Harbour are the same family as I see here in Southport area. I am of the same mind. in future we could match sightings with each other on time s when we see them. they travel quite far in their territory. In the past I've seen the winter trail from Deer Cove(salmon cove) all the way to the center of the island towards Smith sound.

i saw otters in the pond last winter by the take out. i suspect these otters travel far and wide. i wish i had more time for observing.
