Otter tracks Found

September 18, 2017



Following on from our recent Otter sighting on the burn, Otters have now been leaving tracks at the bottom of our nature trail, where rafts had been left to capture any water Vole activity.

Water Voles are currently being reintroduced to Kielder by Northumberland Wildlife Trust, thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the support of partners in the Forestry Commission and the Tyne Rivers Trust.

Whilst the tracks were not Water Voles, it is great to know that our family of Otters is still thriving on the burn and we hope to see much more of them.
