Otter_Logo-04This website describes the work of the Suffolk otter group.
We are volunteers studying Suffolk otters in all sorts of wetlands across the county.
Follow the links to find out more about our research into otters’ diets, lives and behaviour.

We greet summer 2020 with a new logo – huge thanks to designer Ed Hemphill for his skill and flair.
We love it!

About us

General introduction to how we started, where we’re working and what we’re doing.

Suffolk Coast Otter Project

Suffolk’s estuaries and rivers, coastal marshes and reedbeds seem to be very otter-friendly places.
We’re constantly discovering more about how they use these beautiful wetlands.

News of otters

We’ll post information here about new places and behaviours as we discover them. Come back and visit often.






Some very skilled photographers are part of our group and their photos appear on this website. Current photos are by Dennis Brown, Adrian Hinchliffe, Jamie Hall and Arthur Rivett. Many otters have collaborated by switching on remote cameras and taking films of themselves – with a bit of help from our stalwart vols.
