Hi there I'm Jamie from Blackburn Lancashire and I have been visiting leighton moss since being a teenager and going camping in the area.. I have been lucky enough to see the otters at different times when visiting but I was wondering how long they have been there and what is the story behind them ie how many? And things like have they ever bred there?
Hi Jamie I don't know if anyone has told you about a fabulous book about the otters at Leighton Moss. It's called Tails from the Reedbed by Elaine Prince. The shop at LM sells it. It's based on her observations of the otters and other wildlife seen at LM. Great read, lovely illustrations and photos and full of information. About them breeding as well. Hope that helps?
