Fishy tale

As we blister in the unexpected heat wave hitting the normally wind and rain lashed British isles spare a thought for our animal chums. While we homo sapiens have evolved sophisticated techniques such as sweat glands to deal with bpdy temperature control our furry friends are less fortunate. Except for these otters of course, who as temperatures reached between 28 to 32 C in the UK (hotter than many Spanish islands) these lucky aquatic mammals were treated to fish-flavoured ice lollies. No, this isn’t me doing one of my tall tales, it’s on the up and up!
