Hi Robert

I went down there a few weeks back and did not spot anything, I also had a walk around the lake and must say that the fence is still in great condition. There are no gaps for otters to get through so find it hard that one has.
Never seen anything downthere recently.

RE: Rackheath Springs and Otters
I have been down only 2 or 3 times this year. Early morning and evening, been very stealthy and never seen an otter on the lake. Hope this isn't true.

I also had another walk around the lake for a good hour this morning. The only thing I see were the large shoal of Bream, a good shoal of baby Perch and some good Carp.

No signs of any otters and I walked around the whole lake looking for tell tail signs of half eaten fish and did not spot anything.

Think this is rubbish mate?

RE: Rackheath Springs and Otters
I also walked the springs on monday morning early. I didn't see any otters but at the shallow end opposite the dam I did find one footprint, which could have been from a otter, about a metre further on there is evedence of something has tried to get under the wire to get out. Further round, again at the shallow end on the sode opposite the car park there is the skeleton of a fish (6-8 pounds?).The skeleton is largly in tact and the bones are picked clean but it looks quite old. If it had been an otter kill i would have expected the bones to have been more disturbed, on the other if it wasn't an otter how did the fish get there, a good three or four metres from the water and not near any pegs. All of the fence that I walked is in good order, so this is a bit of a mystery. Anyone who wants to meet me there i will only be too pleased to walk round with them and show them the evedence.

Hi Robert

No body fishing there mate. There were a lot more breaks in the weed this morning so not sure weather somebody has cleared the weed out or has started to break down. I will go there fishing possibly Saturday mate so will keep you posted.

Martin
Keith

Would like you to show me where you mean mate as if the fence is lifted slighty then I will drive some more pegs in there to stop it coming back in. I am free in the evenings this week so let me know when you are free.
