Saw a mink (I think, maybe an otter?- no, it’s a confirmed mink!) when I took a noontime walk today. He came out from under the shrubs at the water’s edge near the pedestrian bridge and I watched his sleek form slice down through the water. When he came up he saw me and beat it back for the safety of his den under the bank. Glad I was to see him, since Dennis told me several weeks ago that he and Bob Hely had seen a mink dead in the road. I’m glad that wasn’t the last one.
