Description:

Another few moments with a butter fish (or, sometimes and less so, Tissy*) allowed me to capture the spots along the back, not seen clearly here http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/328313
Very red (I've seen them much lighter, towards green). Once exposed, wriggling and evasive.
Known and personally observed predators Heron and Otter.
