Otters on Lower Moor Farm, Cotswold Water Park

Otters on Lower Moor Farm, Cotswold Water Park

Some of the most magical moments we have spent on the Lower Mill Estate have been watching beavers and otters. Lower Moor Farm, which is the farm next to the Lower Mill Estate has a wonderful group of otters which are often seen. There is an easy walk around the nature reserve, and if you take up position in the hide you might be lucky to see them yourself. This fabulous photo was taken a few days ago by local wildlife photographer Dave Soons.

Otters in Cotswold Water Park

Cotswold Water Park is home to a healthy population of otters, but it remained a mammal that I hadn’t ever seen in the wild…until yesterday morning.  We had a magical time by one of the lakes on the Lower Mill Estate watching the otters diving for fish.  There were four otters who were went about their fishing with our family being a very happy audience.  We were amazed by the number of times they did synchronised dives.  Enjoy watching some of the footage we took!

Otters

Otters

Cotswold Water Park is home to a healthy population of Otters, and if you are lucky you will catch sight of them fishing in one of the lakes. Within the Lower Mil Estate the Swillbrook Lakes Nature Reserve is a good place to start. The remains of their lunch of crayfish can often be found on the paths beside the lake. They are also often sighted on Clearwater Lake, the lake behind Daisy Chain.
