On the Swirl of the Tide
by Bridget MacCaskill
On a sea loch in a remote corner of the Scottish Highlands live several generations of a wild otter family which have been watched over and cared for through more than 12 years by retired forester Don MacCaskill and his wife Bridget. This book records the MacCaskills' observations of the otters.
On an idyllic sea loch in a remote corner of the Scottish Highlands live several generations of a wild otter family which have been watched over and cared for through more than a dozen years by retired forester Don MacCaskill and his wife Bridget. They named the dominant male Bodach, which means "old man", and discovered that he kept two females and their families in a four-mile territory of coastal waters before he died, aged approximately 12. Due to living in a tidal habitat, these otters are not the strictly nocturnal animals of rivers in Devon and Cornwall, which were brought to the edge of extinction in the 1950s. The opportunites to observe and photograph their feeding, their grooming, their play and their mating in full daylight were therefore unique. This book records these observations.
