    Default Otters Eat Birds?

    I didn't know Otters ate birds, but just saw this one opposite Haldanes in Wick having a good scoff and it wasn't worried about me taking pictures. (It must have been hungry)

    They'll kill domestic ducks, with a glad heart!

    Quite capable of destroying entire populations of young water fowl, and the odd lamb too.

    They are scavengers as well as thieves when it comes to prey to big for them to take down..so a few birdies, dead livestock and eggs is not a shock!
    its survival style to be commended really.....diversity etc...........

    All just part of the food chain....

    Birds eat Worms... Otters eat Birds... We eat Otters... Crocodiles eat Us...

    saw one kill and eat a domestic cat once, and the big collie on the farm where I saw that avoided the dog otter since the day he was badly bitten when having a sniff at the otter.

    They are a very effective predator!
