Living Otter Holt.
Sunrise: 08.19 Sunset: 04.03
Activity at the southern marsh otter holt has decreased, which is not unusual: otters move around a lot. The number of daytime lie-ups it will have in its territory can be in double figures. I am seeing otter runs across grass at various places on the marsh. I am either getting better at spotting the runs, or otter activity is increasing – I think the latter.
I have decided to build two or three living holts – two away from and one close to the river – in areas of current or recent activity. Maybe an otter will take a liking to one of my new holts.
I have included a drawing of the living otter holt design I intend to use, for those interested. The design is basic and I intend it to be so; changes will be made depending on the conditions at each site.
