Unfortunately I have not seen the otter family which others have seen on the canal. However whilst working at the Shed the other day a passer by stopped and showed us a video of a female and two young in the canal near Aldcliffe Road. He said he was regularly out early morning and late evening and had seen the otters crossing the Aldcliffe Road toward the Reserve and in the Flora ponds.

This is consistent with a report from one of our active members who was working on the Flora ponds the other evening and noticed a ‘trail’ leading into one of the ponds and mysterious droppings. He suspects otter.
