Description:

Could this, by any chance, be the entrance to an otter holt? Hole found in a bank, opposite the Glencullen river in Knocksink Wood, nr Enniskerry co. Dublin. It looks as if there is evidence of footprints but none clearly visible.

Hole

It is possible, I have seen otter holts with semi-exposed holes, though this one looks a little to exposed. Based on the photo I would say it was more likely a rat hole.

How big was it?
