Once the holt was built and secured in place by the side of the river, we placed one of our trail cameras close to one of the entrance tunnels to see if otters, or any wildlife at all, were checking it out.
Initially, the camera picked up small garden birds, a stoat and some strange lights (probably water on the lens) but after almost a year, the camera managed to pick up what we were hoping for...
At the moment, it doesn't look like the otter is using it's new des res but it has obviously checked it out, so who knows what the future holds? Watch this space!
A big thank you to the family groups who helped with the construction of the otter holt!
