Two baby otters were spotted on Friday November 9, 2012 during the daytime by workmen on their lunch break.

They ran off the lawn, played on the lane, then ducked into the courtyard and the flowerbeds before disappearing down a well-used otter slide from the lawn back into the stream!

Are these the babies of the adult pair seen canoodling in the stream at midnight under a clear sky in September?

It looks like we have an otter family at Watermill Cottages which is wonderful!

For the record, baby otters are called pups, or kits or cubs.
