Otter, Lutra lutra. Paxton Pits, Cambridgeshire, UK. 10th February 2007.

A female and two well-grown cubs were watched almost continually for a couple of hours in Heronry North Lake during a rainy morning. The female was seen to catch several small, red-finned fish (roach?), which she ate whilst on the water surface. She also caught two larger fish, which she carried in her mouth on to the bank, where her cubs joined in the feast.
