MAM­MAL

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

OTTER No mam­mal more clearly strad­dles the bound­ary be­tween land and wa­ter than the Otter. Nor­mally reclu­sive, this mustelid (a mem­ber of the Weasel fam­ily) tends to be com­par­a­tively eas­ily seen this month. In­land, ris­ing river lev­els eject an­i­mals from holts, yet they en­counter less dense river­ine veg­e­ta­tion in which to hide. On the coast, lim­ited day­light hours en­cour­age Ot­ters to feed when we can see them.
