WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

Wildlife Wednesday

Lower Moor Farm Wednesday 7th October 2020

Another visit to lower moor , and a return to the hide on the middle lake . The hide is busy , probably a little to busy with six photographers. I think there isn’t a hard rule with numbers allowed into the hide at any one time but six is probably the most the hide can cope with . Anyway another quiet day . A few song birds , a heron perched up in a tree on the opposite bank and an inquisitive grey squirrel.

And then all of a sudden a rasp of trigger noise from the assembled camera’s. The otters have arrived . Every time I have visited this hid recently, someone explains , oh you’re just too late . You have missed the otter. Well not today ! And not just one otter……three in total , a family group . In total just about half an hour hunting and then gorging themselves on fish after fish.



Worth being in a hide with the by then eight other bird watchers and clickers, you bet.
