‘White Beard’ – The wandering male otter
We have continued to follow the 3 young otters and the lone male ‘White Beard’ along the Río Piloña and Río Sella.
I’m very happy to have captured these pictures. They represent our last encounter with the otters for a while. Belinda and I are changing location. We are leaving the riverbank to concentrate on the seascapes and mountains of Asturias and northern Spain. But we will continue, as usual, to post our wildlife encounters here – at Wild Asturias.
The image above was the last picture on my memory card. Unaware that I was sitting, waiting, the otter swam directly towards me, and then froze just long enough to get a dozen shots. Despite looking intently for the next 20 minutes, it had vanished – just like they have done on so many occasions.
