Otterly Wonderful!

Wednesday, October 23rd 2013

Ken has been setting his remote camera at various locations around the reserve for over two years in the hope of capturing some photographs and videos of the more elusive wildlife found here. Since otters were spotted by Sophie and Adam a few weeks ago along the beck running from the lake his efforts have been concentrated in this area.

After several weeks trying, with no otter shots we had got used to checking the footage and seeing nothing.  This week was different!  We loaded it onto the computer and were first pleased to see a Heron feeding, then Grey Wagtails, and finally two Otters moving along the beck, feeding and playing.

We are very grateful to Ken for his perseverance to get this fantastic footage, we have asked him for some film of Water Voles next so make sure to keep checking the blog for this!

Glennis suggested I look at this - marvellous footage - lovely to know for certain that you have otters.  Isn’t amazing how wildlife will find you in the midst of such a huge area.
