An otter makes a brief night time stop...

Otter



This brief video shows an otter climbing onto a log across a river to have a scratch.
The video was filmed using a standard analogue CCTV camera together with a portable CCTV system as no power was available.

The camera was in place for 3 weeks, giving one shot of an otter, which is probably about standard for otter spotting! The recorder was scheduled to record at night, as otters are less likely to be about during the day, and this avoids the problem of motion recording being triggered by passing leaves and debris.
