See some film footage of Harborough’s famous otter

Market Harborough wildlife filmmaker James Burman will be screening footage of Harborough’s famous otters during a meeting in Great Bowden on Wednesday.

Mr Burman’s film footage also includes scenes of kingfishers and other local wildlife.

Otters have been seen in Harborough’s River Welland since January 2012 with the most recent sightings being last November. It caused much excitement among wildlife-spotters with people often scene lining the riverbanks in town trying to catch a glimpse.

The screening is at the next meeting of the Great Bowden branch of the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust.

It is taking place at Great Bowden Village Hall, on the Green, at 7.30pm. The meeting will also include a report on the group’s upcoming activities by Simon Bentley, who is director of the county’s wildlife trust.
