    Default Otter in Harpsdale

    Saw an otter wandering across our goose paddock this morning in the Harpsdale area, I think it stopped for a snack as two of the ducks didn't come down for feeding this evening. Found half of one so far and no sign at all of the other one, the otter was heading south when last seen travelling in the direction of Dale farm.

    Hope that you are not intending to instigate an otter hunt. I appreciate that the loss of your ducks is financially hard but we need otters.

    Of course there will be no otter hunt, I realise the level of protection that they have. The reason for posting was to let people know that there was an otter in the area for information only. I believe the otter was only passing through probably looking for a new territory, might have just fancied a duck take away on the other hand!
