    More different sign from my recent survey.

    Run from/to the water.


    Castling - raking up of the grass and depositing of spraint. There's 3 spraints in here.


    The run continued to cut off a large bend in the river estuary and the other exit/entrance point is marked.
    (I traced a very faint and spazzy line in MS Paint)

    otters are great animals is just a shame they hade the stupidity to release them in cornwall where there is no river system to support there diet and they have decimated many of the fisheries in cornwall. going by the general cencus of anglers down here it wont be long before you here alot of tales of dead otters. its a real shame that they didnt put more thought into where they released them.

    For a start, who are "they"?

    Now, would you park an expensive car on your driveway and leave the keys in it? No. So why do fisheries moan when they lose expensive fish without taking the correct preventative measures? Beside, cormorant, heron and crayfish are more likely to affect fish stocks than a single otter.
    I recently visited a coarse fishery where they had a problem and to look at the measures taken and they have done an admirable job - everybody's happy.
    If you take a look at the photos you'll see how cheap and simple the solution is.

    Mesh fencing.


    Low electric fence.
