The Isle of Mull was my recent destination for a few days, hoping to see and photograph the sea otter. I was on the island for 4 nights and spent the entire time searching for these illusive animals. I can quite honestly say, this has been my most difficult project.
Mull is quite a big island with many inlets that are perfect locations for otters to mark out their territory. I thought I would be tripping over them, but in the 3 days of searching I only had 2 sightings. The first sighting was distant and lasted about 10 minutes, and then right at the end of my visit to Mull, I enjoyed the most special time with an otter for about 30 minutes.
