Dog Otter

By Maiwand
The Otter (luta lutra)
The European otter is part of the same family as badgers, weasels, stoats, pine marten and mink (Mustelidae). It is listed in the International Union for the Conservation of Natures' (IUCN) Red Book as 'vulnerable to extinction'. The number of otters in Britain is not known, but they are on the increase in some areas, including the Forestry Commission's otter haven at Kylerhea, in Skye.
Lovely to note that they are on the increase in this country.
I hope you enjoy my view of this one.

I would like to thank everyone for the stunning response to the shot of the Grey Heron. Best result I have achieved since joining the site; 18 awards including a GE . Very flattering indeed. I will not be listing the individuals who gave their personal awards as it will take far to long and fill up too much space. I have however PM'd them all with my thanks.

What a fine shot....I have a couple of otters who make an appearance at my shoreline once the ice starts to break up. It's fun to watch them pop up and down through the holes in the ice.
