Visitors on our safari through Tophill Low wildlife reserve had a superb day on Sunday. They saw an otter hunting for duck.
Otter are so diffiuclt to get close to. I had a very tricky time trying to photograph one last winter for this painting.
The exhibition is going well and we've been very busy both inside and outside the gallery.
The short-eared owl safaris this week were a success with marsh harriers also spotted, despite the poor weather. Still to come are a second Tophill Low safari, a walk to find red kites and a final foray into the countryside to spot winter migrants. All are now fully booked.
