Concerns with another otter killed on the road

Otters are regularly being seen in and around Elywildpace which is very good news but sadly, those taking part in the Bird Race on 5 Jan also found another otter roadkill adjacent to the beet factory settling ponds. This is at least the fifth otter casualty along the 200m-stretch of road between the pond and the river in recent years. It underscores the importance of the area for otters – and the urgent need for the highways authorities to reduce the risk of further deaths in future. Ely Wildspace is working with otter experts to examine what might be feasible and effective.
