Annual Otter Survey


This year's Spring Otter Survey will hopefully take place over the weekend of 24th/25th April. At this point in time it is not possible to say if it will be a normal survey or a limited one similar to 2020.  


The Otter Network is a collection of specialists in otter survey techniques, data collection and research.


When completing survey work so many of you expressed an interest in what we were doing that we decided to create this platform where you could find out more and get involved.


Have a look through our pages and get in touch.


Please send us all of your otter records - road kill, live sightings, signs.
Anti-social activity should be reported to the police in the first instance but we are grateful to receive copies of such data.
We are also keen to receive any records of American mink in order to increase our knowledge of their distribution and abundance. Please send us any sightings or field signs.

All records data are passed to ERIC NE
