I remember as a child watching David Attenborough being attacked by a 'rogue' male Caper. I remember watching Birding with Bill Oddie and him missing them. Then in 2003 I finally saw some heads of some male Capers at the lek at Loch Garten. Subsequent viewings have been a repeat performance at Loch Garten and nearly being knocked off my feet by a female in Finland, while her young scattered. But never a rogue male... until now...
I visited the bird briefly twice during our two day stay. Thankfully it was sunny on the second day. What a bird!

I have always wanted to see Otters in Britain, having only seen one, briefly, running across a road in Spain. The Thetford Otters proved to much of a temptation so Sarah and I joined up with Kev Du Rose and had some remarkable encounters with one individual.
