Otter Images on a Trail Camera
I have had the trail camera out next to the landward side of the cliff holt for over a week now. It works on infra red so there is no disturbance to the animals.
The images aren't great as the otters are coming down, or going up a slope and the camera was too close. I have now moved it a few feet back. Here though are a three pictures.
We had one visual sighting of the otter family during the last week, briefly and at high tide, but the trail camera has picked up the otters on 8 occasions:
30.12 17:28 Saw them near the shore an hour earlier
1.1 16:01 and 18:21 Probably resting up in the interval
2.1 05:35 and 07:56 Probably resting up in the interval
Only 2 daytime occurrences, the other 6 after dark.
