White chin mark?

There appears to be a white chin mark - did you see this? The small beady eyes and the chin mark make me wonder if this might be a North American Mink?

All the best

Definitely not an otter. I think I agree with mink

Mink species

We don't get the European mink in Britain, and this is definitely a mink not an otter, so it's an introduced American mink (i.e. the species is introduced, not this individual!).
