Here’s more photos of the otter that I photographed the other weekend.
It takes patience and usually a bit of luck to spot otters. Knowing where to look helps a lot. And you have to remember to stay downwind!
Shetland is one of the best places in the world to see otters in the wild. In fact Simon King, the well-known wildlife presenter, is moving to Shetland to film a documentary about them.
If you’re on holiday in Shetland and would like to see otters I highly recommend hiring Brydon Thomason of Shetland Nature.
