1 comment, , by , in News

This friendly otter attracted a small crowd of admirers this morning when he paid a visit to the Scalloway fish market. Somebody threw him a mackerel and he set about his feast with relish.

Paul Mullay of L&M Engineering was working on the ferry Filla and had his camera handy. “Five of us were standing about a metre away from him,” he said. “We coulda clappit him if we had wanted.”
