LATEST IMAGES - OUTER HEBRIDES2
The Outer Hebrides are a stronghold for the Otter and like most of the coastal Otters in Scotland can be seen during the day. We had gone for over a week without seeing one but eventually we did spot one fishing in a kelp bed. The Otter then came close to the shore and came out onto a rock where it proceeded to scent mark it. With a quiet approach in the car we managed to take some images although as it was pouring with rain at the time. After a few minutes on the rock it resumed feeding in the kelp beds Remarkably when we returned to the same spot the following morning we immediately picked up an otter feeding in the same spot although we felt this Otter was smaller and therefore probably a female. As it came nearer along the kelp I managed some images after hiding in the rocks on the shoreline.
