A Sunny Moment In The Gloom

Thanks to a tip off from pal Julian Friese Beryl and I went immediately down to Cilsan Bridge on the River Tywy which is just 10 minutes from our house.  Within a short wait we were treated to a cacophony of shrill high pitched whistles and then a female Otter appeared coming fast down river.  She was answered equally loudly by a smaller animal (presumably a cub) and they greeted each other in mid stream and then disappeared into the riverside vegetation.

The female Otter who performed so well this afternoon

A few minutes later the female appeared again and swam with great pace in the flooded river under the bridge still calling loudly and made her way into the bank under some willow trees.  Overhead Buzzards, Ravens and a Red Kite hunted.  What a truly magical moment!
