Flatley Beaver Pond

Donna and Amy (potential tracker) spent some time tracking behind the Flatley Building on Rte. 117 in Bolton on Thursday. The surface was 6-10 inches of powdery snow. In the area south of the abandoned railroad bed they found abundant deer and potential candid tracks. On the southern perimeter of the pond was abundant otter sign – tracks, slides, pullout and plentiful amounts of scat. These are findings consistent with past trips to the same area.

  1. That looks like a great tracking location! I like the photo of the otter foot print - nice detail.

    Maybe it's just that we've been tracking in different locations, but it seems to me like we're seeing a lot more otter in the area this winter than we were 2-3 years ago.
