Hopefully this week will see the start of construction on otter fencing at the Foxley lakes.
We have noticed signs of predation there over the last couple of years; mostly from mink; but also from otters.
Mr Davis, the owner of the lakes and farm, is supplying fencing and materials and with the help of the club both lakes will end up with fencing to help protect them from predation.
The topic of otter and mink predation is a widely argued and hot subject matter amongst fishermen and wild life enthusiasts with both sides of the coin offering valid arguments from very different view points.
If you want to know more or just fancy reading up on the debate then here are some interesting links to check out:
