Video: Otter seen hunting in River Welland

Waiting for Video...

An otter can be seen hunting in the River Welland in Harborough town centre in this video submitted to the Mail by a reader.

Ailsa Attenborough took the footage - available to view in the player above - from the Northampton Road bridge on Saturday.

She told the Mail: “I was just walking through St Mary’s place and I saw other people looking at the river. The otter was actively hunting and there were a few people watching.

“After a while it disappeared from view under the bridge and people moved on. But I went up to the bridge to try and see it and that’s when I got the video.”

The video follows this one: apparently showing two otters fighting in the river near Lidl

The Mail also got this footage of two otters scampering around on ice - also near the Northampton Road bridge - in January 2012.

Darren Grist also sent the Mail photographs of the otter taken from St Mary’s Place (see one inset)
