Urban wildlife.

Recommended Posts

Some guy in the city I used to live took these pics,the rivers cleaned up massively since I was a kid,i know exactly where these pics were taken,granted they aren't pin-sharp but they were right-place right-time photos,urban otters,quite a few people have seen them,along with seals,visiting the city centre.

Call it a feeling,but something tells me I could live to the ripe old age of 101 and I will never see a pic showing a genuine 100% born wild in the UK puma or leopard,a recent escapee maybe but nothing born and bred in the wild :victory:

This one was killed on the road last week in an area that hasn’t had otters for long time.

Not a nice thing to see, but roadkill is a good indicator of wildlife in any given area, been seeing a fair few badgers and hares lately

Looked like a real healthy animal, well besides the catastrophic head injuries.
