Some excitement around from the summer. In July, as I walked towards the footbridge near the bing in Waterside, I heard a strange chirping noise over at the water. Sure enough I was lucky to catch a quick glimpse of 2 small otters, running for cover.
Recently in September, another couple of locals said they saw 2 otters (perhaps the same ones) further downstream in the grassy area away from the footpath. keep an eye out folks and report it if you can!
