Why not visit Cricklepit Mill?
Plan a visit to the mill and see if you can spot the otter in the flesh!

Cricklepit Mill cameras
Two cameras have been installed at DWT's headquarters thanks to Viridor Credits Environmental Company. One camera is set up to look at the inside water wheel and the other aims down the leat towards the river. The cameras were set up in 2009 to capture shots of the visiting otters and they have been a real success!
The motion detector cameras have been catching regular footage of otters visiting the Exeter site, both in the day and during the night. Highlights so far have included a visiting snipe, a brown rat and one of the otters struggling to catch a fish.
You can see the latest footage below. Please go to our YouTube channel to see all the archive material.
