Today we are soaked through tired and a few choice words to go with it, and all because of what I consider being the nastiest evil animal that I have ever encountered, the Otter. The Otter in the Valley was the first we have seen for a very long time. And it was big, the size that would have no problem in killing Geese. So I am now convinced that it was the Otter that killed the Geese on the Lake this year and probably in past years. We have needed to waste all of today and it will be most of tomorrow electrifying around the Lake to stop the Otter from taking any more of our Fish, for sure it has been.

We had not seen any signs of the Otter for a very long time. In saying that it is because we have allowed areas around the Lake top become wild so to encourage wildlife, no doubt this has hid the signs that we would normally see when Otters are about. In the Stream by the side of the Lake the were two mutilated dead Rabbits probably other victims of last night Otter.

I really cant get excited about the Otter and I can well understand why the were hunted to the verge of extinction in this country. On saying that I am pleased that some of you were able to see an live Otter and not just on film.
