Clean up

A run out with Doc was fairly productive but hard work at times - maybe we ask too much! The sun was still casting a red glow across the bay as we made our first stop. The Common Seals were keen to keep an eye on proceedings.
A Hooded Crow was soaking up the early morning rays.
A Dipper was a nice find and reasonably obliging too.
A dead Mountain Hare was being attended to by a Buzzard and a couple of Raven - nice to see a clean up.
It took a while but we eventually found a family of three Otters.
There was plenty of social interaction going on...
...and plenty of spray... they performed their own clean up.
We must have spent a good couple of hours with these three before they headed for the holt.

It was an opportunity to be taken but it looked a lot better in reality. Thanks for the comments though.
