Otters on Carna

On the island of Carna, Western Scotland, I found the same number of otters as there are houses – three.  I first caught them on my camera trap, playing on the pontoon during the night, and from their behaviour I suspect they are two parents and one kit.  At least two came to the pontoon every night, ran around, had a scratch, left their mark and then disappeared back into the water.  The younger one fished regularly during the early morning.
