Wow! A wild otter

Observed: 21st July 2011 By: scussonsscussons’s reputation in Mammalsscussons’s reputation in Mammals

A wild otter on a Norfolk Broad in bright sunlight at 1pm, with motor cruisers about. Never expected to see a wild otter, especially in a busy Broad. As we watched a Kingfisher flew over.

When I saw your photograph, I immediately expected you to say it was seen in S.Wales!!
Your site looks identical to a place called Bosherton Lakes, and we have watched a family with 2 youngsters swimming around and playing here. Wonderful! Just had to send this note because it bought back a great memory - about 2008.
