Otter at Bosherston

An Otter was fishing in the central arm of the lake system this morning, near the bank opposite Grassy Bridge. The large size of the animal suggested that it was an adult and very probably a dog Otter.

In general, Otter sightings have been relatively scarce at Bosherston since the lakes froze again in January, with most other sightings in the eastern arm (between Eight-arch Bridge and Grassy Bridge).

  1. I saw "him" day before yesterday below the Eight Arch Bridge. Photo here, it's pretty grim, he was a long way away, so it's a severe crop. I'm no expert, but as you say, he's quite big, looks like a dog otter.
