Comments:
I first noticed Otter tracks in the snow all around the waterfront area of Petley. While photographing another subject, the Otter appeared very near to where I was standing. It then ran in between two sheds and around my mother's house, touching the walls in places. I observed it entering the ocean from the beach. It then swam towards my position and commenced diving, i assume it was looking for food.
