My Otter survey begins on the River Dane

Today I chose two places where I will be camera trapping over the next 12 months to see if otters are either living or traveling through the area. In one of the secret sites I will be building an artificial Holt which will I will bait with fish place a camera in so I can check it in the daytime to see if an otter is sleeping in it or any signs of use to avoid disturbance.
 At the site above I found lots of mammal activity but the footprints could not be identified due to fine sandy soil. It looks like a regular crossing point to get under a road which leads to a small brook where there is a few possible otter slides.
