Birnam Glen Otter on video
Last year we came across an otter in the little dam that many years ago served as the water supply for Birnam - but I think no-one believed me! So imagine how happy I was this morning when, just as we pass by the Birnam Glen gnomes, I hear a splash in the (very low) burn, and there just a few metres away is an otter. Because the water level is so low, it was very visible, and as I don't think it had seen me by then, I had time to get out the phone and get around 30 seconds film before it realised I was there and went into hiding - at which point I left it in peace. A magical moment!
