A memorable close-range encounter with a European Otter (Lutra lutra) feeding upon a freshly captured flatfish (probably a Flounder, Platichthys fletus). Having spotted the otter swimming to shore, I patiently stalked its likely position across the slippery seaweed-strewn rocks. I was overjoyed to pop my head up from behind a rock to see the otter just a few metres away and was even happier to spend the next twenty four minutes in its company.
