Martin Mere shots OTTERS


I said I would add more from the day trip as the week went by and this set is about the Otters. We got there just as the site opened and went straight to the Otters. They were not due to feed for another 90 minutes and must have thought we were the keepers. They soon realised that “fish” we did not have but remained playful.
They are such fun things to take snaps of – hope you enjoy as much seeing the results.
