We get a lot of wildlife visiting us because we live next to a creek. There are several wildlife corridors in this area that connect to large wilderness areas such as Goldstream Park and the Sooke Hills, plus lots of deer trails everywhere, and a Capital Regional District park is nearby. We even get larger things like cougars and bears passing through sometimes. The best wildlife sightings I’ve experienced are seeing a pair of river otters cruising up the creek while at the same time a family of raccoon foraged on the banks. The otters were too quick for my camera but here are a few snapshots of the raccoons.
