It came back ...

Wednesday (21st) the otter came back to the mill stream at lunchtime
Taken from the bow, he/she was under the mooring pontoon by the stern of Still Rockin'

Can you see him?

... and then he/she was gone.

The otter was in the mill stream for at least half-an-hour and the pictures above taken over about twenty minutes.  He/she looked tired towards the end, not so alert, and was trying to curl up and rest on those large stones.  Perhaps this was because he'd gorged on lots of fish (of which there are thousands in the stream), or perhaps he felt a bit 'trapped' because there were three of us watching, talking quietly and taking pictures.  Next time just a couple of photos and let him/her be I think.
