Otter

Never done this before with photographers but everything have to be a first time. Bjørn Oddvar asked me -“should we go out to stay a whole night?”


I have lots of “friends” out there. Miguel, Maurizio, Arnold, Florian, Gill +++ But I must say that the Otter is my favorite animal.


In Flatanger we have a very good population of Otters. Where the Otters live there is also a good place to live for the Sea Eagles. All time of year you can see Sea Eagles stealing fish from the Otter. Our coast is rich and it’s no problems for the Otter to find more than he need. But the eyes of a Sea Eagle is just amazing, in 1-2 km they can see a smal fish in the sea, and they easily can see an Otter.


But the Otter dont care, if the eagle steals he find a new one, easy!! And they have fun, in the winter you can see them having fun, like walk up on the top of an island and than slide down in the snow. So this Otter is around now. The pictures are taken in 24 hours , so you see natures changing fast right now.


Hope he will be around for some more days so my new guests can meet him!! Great fun but he is a wild animal and he is a great fisher, can see him fishing in the lake and river.


My winter feeding season is over now, having some days just to be an Otter:-) So to all who have been here in Flatanger this winter, THANK YOU!! Have been a good year even if the Goshawk have been difficult. She lost here husband last spring. She is now calling for a new one, hope he will be a good bird for my guests!!
