Owen, our priority species research student, has been out and about at the Bann Estuary and River Bush in search of otters. He has seen some promising signs and has been chatting to locals getting some helpful information.
At the estuary, Owen spotted promising tracks as well as an otters ‘couch’ which is normally used as a resting place and at the River Bush he found paw prints beneath a stone arch.
Otters are elusive creatures; anyone who manages to spot one is very fortunate but irregardless the search continues.
Owen didn’t manage to see one, but he did see some other interesting wildlife at the river Bann. See the pictures below. If you have any information and would like to help please contact us on our Facebook page ‘Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust’ or email Owen at: Research@ccght.org.
