Otter in the Lake

Posted by sheiladearing on 28 Feb 2011 at 11:11 AM

Little did I know the treat in store as I drove to work this morning. It all started when Helen radio’d to say that there was an otter in the lake. So I hot footed it from Lady Anne’s Garden where I was taking photo’s, to find Helen gazing over to the far bank of the lake. ‘It’s just been swimming up and down’ she said – typical I thought; missed it by just a few minutes! So, I went back to the office, and just as I was about to eat my orange, there was another call from Phil to say that the otter was in the lake again, so off I went (not so far this time!) and found Phil and Pete watching an otter happily swimming around the lake looking for fish (most of which the mink has already had!). As I watched, it started jumping out of the water and put on a wonderful display – by this time Phil and Pete had gone back to work and I was the only one to see it! I took lots of photo’s; most of which showed just a brown dot in the middle of the lake but and here is the best one.
