That's the largest 'flook' I've seen in the Cromarty Firth since I used to set a 'scanty'in he late 40'searly 50's. Where was the pic taken? Off the East Beach? Better not let those in Brussels know that flookies are recovering, or they'll reappraise the EU Common Fisheries Policy. Rather pleasing too, to see otters, in habitat, enjoying their share!

It started off at the grassy carpark on the sea front n went right towards the long drainpipe where I took the photo.
