Oh Happy Day!

This morning I bumped into Phil at The Farm Gate, whilst we were chatting Phil spotted a female Tufted Duck (or better) fly in from the north and land on Black Hole Marsh. We went down there for a look 'just in case' but the duck was nowhere to be seen. BUT..... Wait for it.......Phil spotted an OTTER!!!  I was absolutely thrilled to get my first ever views of one in the wild :-) It climbed out onto the bank eating a fish before it vanished for a while. We saw it again a short while later swimming over the lagoon before running over the grass towards Colyford Common. Absolutely brilliant!!! I can stop sulking now too ;-)
