Polecated!

Sunrise: 07.05 Sunset: 06.54

I downloaded 145 images from my Otterholt-cam today. These are three of the more intriguing images that I thought might be of an otter when first viewed on a small screen; however, when viewed on my computer screen this evening, it is plain that the visitor is a polecat.

There is a time difference of two hours between the first and second images, and two days between the second and third.

It seems to me that every marsh animal small enough to do so has inspected this otter holt, apart from an otter.

The otter-cam is looking into the holt living chamber.
