Close encounter with an Otter at Thompson Water 06/11/12.


This Otter at Thompson Water on 06/11/12 was porpoising through the water in its hunt for fish. When it eventually saw me I could actually hear it sniffing the air, it knew that something was wrong (not that I smell that bad).
This was a lovely encounter with this special mammal.

  1. I envy you your Otter experiences Paul. No matter how early I get up I cannot think of suitable habitat nearby. Great to see your blog developing and some lovely atmospheric views of Thompson water - wherever that is.
