The pristine marine and terrestrial habitats in Shetland mean that otter populations thrive here and represent approximately 12% of the UK population. There are large stretches of untouched and undisturbed coastline, meaning that Shetland otters often come out in daylight hours, in contrast to otters on the mainland, that are forced to a nocturnal habitat.
Whilst staying in Shetland, I hoped to get some otter footage on my Bushnell cameras. Under expert guidance, I set the cameras at several different locations. This included an otter holt on a remote piece of coastline. This site and the footage I captured is easily the most exciting I have ever captured.... one week was just not enough.. imagine what you could achieve over a longer period!
I feel very priviliged to have been able to see a site such as this and my thanks must go to my wonderful hosts, who shared this special site with me!
