Desperate to get out with the camera while we were away in Pembrokeshire over the weekend, I decided on a trip to Cardigan to see a Ring billed Gull which had been around for over a week. Armed with Gull bait, (bread) it didn`t take long for it to show, though it soon ignored the bread and returned to the mud of the river bank. I gave up and made my way to find the wife who had taken the dog for a walk. Remembering what a friend had told me 20 years ago, " if you want to see Otters the best place is Cardigan, under the bridge" so I got into position and within a few minutes found a family of four playing and fishing near the other side of the river.
After about an hour they swam in, climbed the bank, crossed the path and made their way presumably to their Holt.
