OTTER STUDIES


There’s no great kudos in finding these particular otters. They are Asian short-clawed otters and they are one of the attractions at WWT Barnes, where a number are kept in a spacious enclosure. There’s plenty of water for them, obstacle courses (pipes and so forth) have been set up, and they look sleek and well-fed (as well they might be, with feeding times twice daily). I managed to see 3 at an uncrowded time, and one in particular seemed to enjoy being admired.

    • They are lovely to watch, esp if you hit a time when there are few people around. I took shots of a pair (brace? couple?) play-fighting and spraying water about. I had to junk them all – I’d got a lens extension on and I should simply have taken it off. Lesson learnt. Another time! RH
