A much brighter day today, so headed back to Blandford to search for Otters.  Got quite lucky as three were about (mother plus two youngsters), working their way down the river.  So I was able to watch them for about 30 minutes until the footpath came to an end and they drifted off out of sight.  Very interesting to watch - particularly because they seem to attract Kingfishers.  So I got a couple of nice shots of a Kingfisher in some good light.  This one's a male.  Yesterday's a female.

I also popped to the New Forest late morning to search for Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers.  No luck.
