We took a short weekend away to explore several rivers. Río Nansa (Cantabria), Río Deva & Rio Cares. The weather wasn’t kind to us. The route was muddy but we still managed a 15 km walk and only saw rain for an hour. However, the river was high and murky, not the best for photography or wildlife watching.
A pair of Hobbies saved the day and entertained us the next morning as well. They performed well and were not put off as I slipped off a large rock and fell down the riverbank. I saved the camera but got a sprained wrist and bruises. Less painful than a new lens.
During the 2 hours we watched it returned to the same perch after each flight.
The route between Muñorrodero and Camijanes is a beautiful river walk, although our otter watching didn’t look promising with the weather conditions.
