Birds are not the only creatures visible from Machrihanish Seabird Observatory, as evidenced by this photograph of an otter taken by warden Eddie Maguire.

It is one of a few images Mr Maguire managed to snap of the carnivorous mammal on rocks near the observatory, taken towards the end of July.

If you have a photograph you would like to share, please email it to, send it via the Courier’s Facebook page or bring it into the Courier office to be copied.
