Otter print found - January 2020

The paw print in the image below is of an otter and we would guess the otter was working it's way down the water course and trying to get back to the stream as it was found on the track towards the bottom of the reserve.

We have recorded otter twice now on the cameras, once by the inflow, it must have come through the inflow culvert and once by the side mine culvert. We haven't had them for some months though so this record is great. Lovely to have them around here relatively frequently.

 

 

This image was taken at the bottom of the valley and shows the beaver's latest tree with their gnawing on it. It is right by the bottom gate and its branches are against the larger tree which will stop it going over the gate. There is an obvious beaver track around this where the beavers have been exploring!

 

 

Beaver update - December 2019

The beavers have settled in together well now and there are signs of tree removal.

 

 

 

 

Christmas sheep removal - December 2019

The sheep which have been grazing in the wild flower area at Linear Park have now been taken back to their farm over Christmas. They should be back in the spring.
