Comments:
that family of otters has been coming here in the last year. there were 4 there, mother and three young. they are getting pretty big now. they stay in the harbour for a couple of days and then do their round of their range. they will usually range 15-20 miles or more, .

great sighting Sam. I wonder if it is the same Otters i sighted in Hickman's Harbour pond, (near the school) last winter.
