Deer Rut & October Otters

2014.10.21

Watching a couple of red stags rutting at Richmond park was a first for me, the noise was phenomenal and something I won't forget. This chap had just seen off a rival and was making sure everyone around new about his victory.

October is such a wonderful time of year, as well as the autumn golds & fabulous fungi you can't really walk through the forest without bumping into one of these handsome bucks during the rut.

Otters are inquisitive, playful and intelligent, often appearing to take childlike enjoyment in sliding around on muddy banks or in snow. They are semi-aquatic mammals and live in holts around water edges.

Otters are one of our top predators, feeding mainly on fish, waterbirds, amphibians and crustaceans

Otters are well suited to a life on the water as they have webbed feet, dense fur to keep them warm and can close their ears and nose when underwater.

The rest of my otter shots are action shots and they didn't come out too good, not to worry as I enjoyed watching these beautiful mammals.

pcmcgarry The otters look fantastic, wonderful creatures. We have red squirrels up here at Form by point but they were troubled with a virus that nearly wiped them out. Another must see post mossy, thanks.
