I watched an Otter in the River Avon from about 10.55-11.10am on Sunday 10 September. My first sighting in the city centre! The animal kept close to the far bank and within the bank-side vegetation.

It was actively hunting for food. It dived a few times and I was able to follow its trail of bubbles, before its head emerged again. It continued swimming down the river and I eventually lost its trail when I was down by Spring Gardens.
