Hi all

We had our first record of otter at Titchwell last night in the pathside pools between the Meadow Trail and Island Hide.
I know that they are increasing inland but does anyone know what their status is up on the coast?

Thanks

Paul

We've had Otters at Holme before though I've not seen one myself but I know Gary has.

I see them at times between Wells and Cley on the saltmarsh and up the Stiffkey Valley. They can be a problem if you have breeding birds about. They caused a complete gull\avocet\oystercatcher\LRPs breeding failure ( about 80 nests ) at one site 3 years ago. They never killed any birds , but seemed to want to play marbles with the eggs. The next morning there were eggs scattered all over the nesting islands and in the water with otter tracks all around them.

One reported as injured this morning between the Iron Road and Walsey Hills alongside the coast road.
