Otter asleep at low tide on reef, Clew Bay, County Mayo, Ireland.15/05/2015

Last Sunday on my way home I noticed a dark shape on a rock, suspecting an otter. Getting closer I realized it was an otter asleep on a reef. Clew Bay is a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) where the management objective is to restore the favorable conservation condition of otters. Potential threats to otters in Clew Bay include disturbance from human activities from pot fishing,  loss of habitat and lethal roadkill.
