Questions and Answers: In-Depth Responses

I have just returned from a week in Picardy France. In a small river/stream near Drancourt I definitely saw an otter. On returning to UK and checking I see this is rated as extinct/very rare in the Picardy area but am 100% certain of my sighting.

Response from Hélène Jacques, OSG French Representative

Many thanks for your information about an otter sighting in Picardie : I transferred the message to otter people there, and I think they will contact you.

All the best
