Otters in Kintyre

A short (9 min) video by Dave Purchase of a family of 3 otters playing, hunting, feeding and working the shoreline. Beautiful animals, a rare treat for us and a delight to watch.

Filmed on a handheld camera on zoom setting in a reasonably high wind, so a little bit of shake now and then. Link is to a video on our Youtube channel due to file size.
