Otter making a wish

Rather a brutal sight, when an otter caught and killed a shag at the edge of the loch recently.

 

I saw something flapping on the rocks near the shore, so parked up for a look, then realised an otter was in the process of killing a poor shag.

 

It wasted little time tearing into the bird, eating pretty much everything except the larger bones and feathers.
