Former head ranger Mal Ingham said: ‘The otters will be feeling more relaxed about travelling up and down the waterways.

‘There’s less human activity. They are more inclined to travel around and explore. Otters wander far and wide, people are reporting seeing them more often.

‘There are less people on the canals and less human disturbance on boats and through angling.

‘The otters and badgers are on private land – with no public footpaths – but that wildlife does encounter humans elsewhere.’

Mr Ingham is a former Head Ranger & Wildlife Officer who has published books on some of Britain’s wildlife. He is now in charge of reviewing all sightings of badgers, foxes and otters in Flintshire, North Wales. 

He revealed that since the lockdown forced people to stay at home, he was been getting more alerts from the remote cameras.  

Across the country, creatures are making the most of empty streets and quiet footpaths.

In Llandudno, North Wales, mountain goats have ventured into the town centre and at York train station, a goose has laid its eggs.
