Otter at Coombe Hill Meadows

An Otter (Lutra lutra) was seen from the Grundon Hide on Saturday 28 Feb 2015 from 08:15. The animal spent about half an hour hunting along the edge of the Short Pool. It caught at least three fish, each time coming out onto the bank to eat the fish. A Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) seeing the otter , walked near the otter seemingly hoping for some scraps to come its way – but made no attempt to take the fish from the otter. Observers: David Anderson and Les Brown.
