Squeezing Fisher

Lars followed a meandering fisher track in Heath Hen Meadow, Stow, and found a tight spot where he had to squeeze under a fallen branch.


  1. How strange. I wonder why the fisher would go to that kind of effort rather than just jumping over.

  2. Lars, could this have been an otter rather than fisher? I think an otter would be more likely to go under the branch, where fisher more likely to go over, as Susan points out.

    In the top photo, that first group of 4 tracks has an otter-like quality to my eye. Not that fishers don't use the same gait, but I think that grouping is particularly common for otters.
