Picture the scene, it's cold wet and windy there is nothing happening. Were in Hayle bird hide, Leanne disappears to the van for a brew, and Mel Sedgwick shouts "there's an otter", I am onto it and capture it before it disappears. (Mel missed his spot, so did Leanne) Rather fortusiously for Mel, Leanne and me the otter emerged again out of the undergrowth dived for a short swim and came back with dinner, a rather large crab. After gorging himself he returned to the water where he was warned off by a swan and disappeared. I have seen Otters at Paradise Park and others places in captivity, but nothing anywhere near the huge size of this one. Oh two common sandpipers made an appearance before the otter, one pictured below. So despite the weather it turned out to be a great day in the wet!!!!!
