We seem to wreak havoc with wildlife on our roads, I came across the Otter when I was on the way to work, and photographed it with my compact camera. The location , on the A30 bypassing Treneere Estate, in Penzance was unusual, and some way from water. European Otters are experiencing a successful recovery after the devastation of the pesticide DDT and over hunting, but rarely seen. I have seen very few Otters in my life time, some say that when they are seen in this way, it may indicate that they are doing well . As for me, I think it is another sad indictment of modernity.
Early morning light made photography difficult.
