Since arriving at The Dulaig eight years ago we have tried to make our gardens a haven for wildlife as well as for our guests.
We know that every year we can see more and more birds and mammals visiting us and for fun we installed some cameras to see what is visiting us when we are not looking. We could not believe our eyes when one of our cameras picked up an OTTER!

It was a real treat to witness this very special event, e...
