Otters is an accessible and lively account of an intriguing and much-loved animal that, surprisingly, is still endangered and rarely seen, despite a recent resurgence that has seen it expand its range throughout Britain and even into our cities.
Nicola Chester's charming, informed text brings this elusive and exciting mammal into sharper focus, revealing what an otter is and how they live, feed, play and breed. Nicola reflects on how otters exist in our imagination culturally and how that has changed over the years. She also examines the many challenges otters have faced, exposing what brought them to the brink of extinction, and explores the challenges we face in trying to find and watch otters in the wild.
The RSPB Spotlight series introduces readers to the lives and behaviours of our favourite animals, with eye-catching colour photography and informative expert text.
About the authorNicola Chester's unique observations of wildlife first came to public attention when she won the BBC WIldlife nature writing competition more than a decade ago. She has been a columnist for the RSPB's magazine since 2006, and combines her nature writing with the demands of raising a younf family, but still finds as much time as she can to watch, track and study the diverse wildlife on her home patch in the Berkshire downs.
