River Tone

The R Tone was one of  the  areas  chosen for a feasibilty study of identifying otters through the DNA in their spraints.  Subsequent surveys have  shown results which are consistent with what was found in that study.   So it appears that our measurements of the carrying capacity of this catchment are valid.  The whole catchment of the R Tone and its tributaries has space enough for about a dozen adult otters.
