Clearly a keen footie fan - Bluebirds or Swans I wonder?

I briefly spoke to Bob Haycock after his Chough talk on Friday. He is based up by bosherston lakes and mentioned how a fisherman managed to hook an otter on the lakes. It took him 30 minutes to get it, the barbless hook was on the otters lower lip and the man's arms got very mauled! The otter wasn't looking too good after that but apparently was spotted at a later date ok. Not sure what type of fishing he was doing, but I have seen some huge pike at bosherston!
