We failed to see any this week, but were delighted to see an Otter. It was a fair distance from us, but we could see it clearly through binoculars.
It swam to and fro below the dome of Sizewell Power Station ...
... and then it turned towards us (photo below). You can just about make out the characteristic 'V' emanating from the otter and receding in the weed.
There was a measure of excitement in the hide over the appearance of a Great White Egret. I have seen this bird in the western Peloponnese, but it was my first sighting in the UK. The egret was right over on the far side, and as you can see, I was shooting into the sun. You may have to take my word for the yellow on the bill!
On our way back to the car we caught a glimpse of this Muntjac deer ...
There were plenty of rabbits and grey squirrels out and about in the autumn sunshine.
