Go to Bristol you get otters in the centre, used to take a ton of pelts off the Clifton down back in the 80s all the party goers walking back from the nightclubs and me and my mates slipping dogs out the van in amongst it all 😂

I only see them when the feeder streams dry up abit,they come  back in the main river ...been catching decent size chub tbf,I think the barbel could still be spawning that's why they are scarce 🤞speaking to the carp lads...there's a 32lb ghost carp swimming in the one stretch..and a good 15 plus over 20lb...they start going missing,I can see there being a problem 👍

The cull here has made a huge dent in the population .Almost a talking point to see one ,a far cry from 6 years ago when we were tripping over them .They are about but I’d say they’ve learnt to come out in the early hours .

Otters a regular sight now on the Avon .

Mate of mine lost all his koi last week and otter had to climb 6 foot wall to get  them .All fish dead on his decking with brains and guts gone .

Wish they would start the cull up this end, don’t want involved or nowt jist them controlled

City centres are lifting with gear, lamping any green space at night in London or the burbs will give you endless fun.

 

Just before moving here I had to get the train into London for a final interview. Just as the train was pulling into the city, there was about 20 foxes chilling out, just at the entrance of a tunnel. Couldn’t believe that many foxes in one place!

I’m in the process of quoting to remove a badger that has made its home underneath the main building of a hospital.

My old mum feeds 5 every night, they come to a whistle !

They come right up to her.

They are very tame and very bold, funny to see them all chittering away fighting over the food.
