The Secret Life of the Otter

The Secret Life of the Otter


The Secret Life of the Otter

This stunning book is by Andy Howard, one of Britain’s leading wildlife photographers

One of the most popular and endearing of Britain’s wild creatures, made famous by literary works such as ‘Tarka the Otter’ and ‘Ring of Bright Water’

Otters can be found along the full length of the British and Irish coasts but also in many river systems and lochs. Almost extinct in England due to water pollution and hunting, their numbers have recovered and they are one of conservation’s great success stories

Here in Andy Howard’s book he combines his stunning photographs with illuminating text into the life of the Otter – how they hunt, how they raise their young, their territory battles and the beauty of these mammals. Andy has been photographing and observing them for over a decade, especially on the Isle of Mull, Shetland and Vancouver Island in Canada
