After about two month’s absence the otters have been showing themselves again. The mother and the two pups are still at the far end of the lake with the father living apart from them at the other side of the lake. Three years ago the male was a regular visitor to The Rectory Pool – the stretch of sheltered water just at the bottom of our drive. Fisherman had reported seeming him a few times and we spotted him once whilst we were out walking round the lake. But today he was seen by Carol, the lady who kindly cleans for us, as she left for home. Otters eat about 17 per cent of their body weight in fish every day and the father was eating a brown trout he had just caught off our foreshore.
