15 September 2020 - Bealltainn Update

Submitted by: Ben

Bealltainn development continues!

After her move, Bealltainn has been more elusive and shy. While the weather held here on Skye she spent most of her time hidden outside and we didn't see her for a few days. We knew she was there as the spraint continued and the fish
was getting eaten. The change in the weather brought Bealltainn back to her sleeping box and she is looking great, as you can see.

She is developing well and is acting more and more like a wild otter - great news!

01 September 2020 - Bealltainn moves

Submitted by: Grace

Bealltainn has been moved to one of the croft pens which is much bigger and so she has a lot more space to explore.

We have been concerned that she was a bit too accepting of human presence. Often when we went to feed she would come to the gate and she seemed to have none of the natural wariness of a wild otter. So we were actually very pleased when it took us a bit of time to catch her and she did show a bit of aggression. This is what we want if she is to go back to the wild.

As you can see the vegetation is very long so there are also plenty of places for her to hide and hopefully she will do this more.
