An otter and owl sanctuary. That's just another word for zoo.
- The edge of Brown Knoll (569 metres), with a strange black castle on top of a railway tunnel air shaft. The lighting on the trees is so surreal, it looks like a beam from a space ship. (Relax ufologists, it's just sunlight breaking through the clouds.)
- An Asian short-clawed otter and its stone in a pond.
- Asian short-clawed otter.
- Playing with a stone.
- Posing for the camera. Asian short-clawed otter.
- &burp;. Oops. Asian short-clawed otter.
- Scottish wildcat. Does the same as a regular cat. But wild. Except this one, which is in a cage. Is it still a wildcat?
- Fox, posing beautifully for the camera.
- Speaking of beautiful poses, this pair of Asian short-clawed otters were perfect, waiting for me to take my pictures in the dappled sunlight.
- Begging for their photographic model fees.
- Eurasian otters, explaining why all the other eurasian otters had been missing. These are our native otter, yet the sanctuary mostly has only the Asian versions. I guess the tourists want to see otters that will actually put in an appearance.
- Fallow Deer does.
- Fallow Deer faun.
- Saving the best for last; a superb Fallow Deer buck, in a perfect pose, showing off his antlers. The others beside him were constantly shaking their heads and flapping their ears, to try to get rid of the flies. Looked funny, but no good on a still frame picture.
