Seen anything otter?

There are three otters in the enclosure at Slimbridge, where the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust (WWT) are working to safeguard the recent return of the species to our waters, and they really are characters.
This one, who is called Mo, climbed a tree close to the enclosure boundary whilst we were there. We thought she was planning her escape until she settled down in its branches and promptly fell asleep.
Workers at WWT have put this unusual otter behaviour down to teenage rebellion. To read more about it follow this link to the WWT website.
