North American River Otter in Long Island Sound
Just wanted to post a first for me. I was at Greenwich Point Park in Old Greenwich this morning around 8am and saw a North American River Otter swimming and fishing about a 1/4 mile out into Long Island Sound! It was headed in an east southeast direction. This was first time I’d seen an otter in CT and a river otter in salt water. I also met a birder who said an American Mink was seen recently along the edge of the large pond on the island, also a nice mammal. I guess the waters in the sound are pretty clean:-) Attached are a couple of poor shots I took.
