Mull - Loch Na Keil Otter

A real surprise was at Loch Na Keil today was this dog Otter which ran across the road and proceeded to munch a few crabs and fish on the shore......

The Oyk is a useful clue as to the size of this brute!

running / swimming from one patch of seaweed to another....

Another fish about to go down the hatch!

The seaweed strewn rocks are clearly a haven for quite sizeable crabs and the otter know that!

Adeptly managing to avoid getting nipped? An occupational hazard!

I didn't try to approach - enjoying the moment at a comfortable distance and not spooking him in the process :-)

There should be a White-tailed Eagle in the frame tomorrow?
