Animal Tracks at Bartholomew's Cobble

Two weeks ago, at Bartholomew's Cobble in Sheffield, we saw the best tracks in mud I've ever seen, along the Housatonic River. The river had flooded and receded leaving behind silt and mud dried to the perfect consistency for tracks. I got them identified by Rene Wendell, Conservation Ranger and amazing naturalist at Bartholomew's Cobble.

These Rene thinks are otter. I couldn't get closer
because I didn't want to spoil the tracks (or my shoes in the mud)!
