Staying with Martin Mere but OTTERS.


They have about 6 of these lovely creatures at the Mere and they are usually out and playful. Photo opportunities abound and it is difficult to get a bad shot. Their area is close to the coffee shop (which iks also a great area if you want to try “in flight” birds but it does mean that you can pop in to see the otters a couple of times a day or more depending on your needs for caffine.
Here are some more following on from the main site pic.
Hope you enjoy them

Thanks John - think how they would have been had "I" drank the coffee. Can you recommend a good useful ID site for ducks, geese etc etc. Would love to know what I am shooting
