Hi skyjack
There are certainly Otters in Cheshire, they have now reappeared in every County in England. Three were recently filmed in the  River Gowy . One of our members lives in Cheshire , and is a member of the Cheshire Wildlife Trust, and I'm sure she will confirm this. As to wether what you are seeing is a dead Otter is hard to say, without a picture, which you cant post unless your a member. The other possibility is that it is a Mink, but they are smaller than an Otter.


If I can make somebody smile, my day has been worthwhile

Hello Skyjack

I also live in Cheshire, and yes there are otters in the county. I am not sure how extensive they are,but you could get in touch with Cheshire Wildlife Trust as I am sure they would be interested and would be able to help.
