A satisfyingly slinky Otter (Lutra lutra) dives from a monitoring raft and swims off into the dark. Otters are an amazing but elusive predator in freshwater ecology.
Otters are one population in recovery and it is reported that the number of sites with an otter presence increased by 55% between 1994 and 2002 and in the Environment Agency declared in 2011 that every county in the UK once again has otters present.
