I set up a Trail Camera on a mink raft out on the marsh a couple of weeks ago and this evening collected the card to see if it had captured anything interesting. Flicking through photo after photo of roosting Moorhens and Mallards this suddenly popped up!

Then this:

And also these:

If you look very closely there's actually 2 Otters on that last photo so I suspect this is a family party. Is this mum?                                                                                                                                            
As you can tell I'm rather pleased with this little collection. It's what you always hope for when you put out a trail camera.                                                                                                                             
After last week, Water vole sightings have been coming thick and fast, particularly along the dykes along the edge of the marsh with some tree cover. I think they feel safer here from the depredations of the many Marsh Harriers further out on the marsh so don't spook so easily when you approach.
