We put our bikes down and my mate stopped by the fallen tree and said, "Did you hear that?"
I said, "Yeah, sounded like something squeaking!"
I then realise the sound is coming from my feet and upon closer inspection, I spot these two little dudes:
Pup numbah One
Pup numbah two
I suddenly turned into mush and was initially convinced they were abandoned puppy dogs, so I thought of rescuing them and then the thought of inadvertently acquiring two puppies did cross my mind - Not that I would complain of course!!!
Then, upon careful inspection with a stick (as not to leave a scent), I deduced they were actually otter pups, due to their clawed and slightly webbed feet, heavy whiskers and tail shape.
We left them alone, as the mother was probably out hunting or hiding round the corner away from us two herberts, but I do hope they were OK, as they only appeared a few days old.
This week I'm back off up to the Tan Hill Inn, as the owners are going to London for a few days and want me to work the pub in their absence.
See ya'll next weekend.
P.S. I just realised, I've been blogging for just over one year now! Happy Blogday to me :]
