Odd one out

The first winter Mediterranean Gull was still present at Cwmbran Boating Lake this lunchtime along with a single Great Black Backed Gull, 4 Canada Goose, 19 Goosander and a Cormorant.

Also came across several dead Bream ( I think) most of which had their heads removed. Is this the predatory work of an Otter?


  1. Hi Steve, these all look like Roach. They have a bluey silver tinge to the upper parts of the body. The top and the right hand side ones are definitely Roach from the mouth shape / angle of the mouth. Chris Jones

  2. Thanks Chris - Evidently I know nothing about fish!
