Market Harborough Otters


Eleanor paid an afternoon visit to Blueberry Farm, Maidwell today, locating two Barn Owls, a pair of Stonechat and two Ravens.

There is currently mixed information on the Otters in Market Harborough. The Harborough Mail newspaper suggests that the animals haven't been seen along the River Welland since November. However, there are reported recent sightings, particularly when the water was higher a week or two ago so it seems likely that they are still present but perhaps not showing as well as the last two winters. Neil Hasdell and Jim Dunkley have both visited several times but neither have managed a sighting. However if you want to experience good views of Grey Wagtails and Kingfishers, there are several individuals of both species present and showing regularly.
