Gareth Watkins reported the following yesterday 'On the way home...[from the cliffs at Pennard] I saw something swimming; my wife thought on the first brief glance it must be a small darkish seal. But we saw another ten or so surfacings, some through binocs & scope, and there's absolutely no doubt that it was an otter. It seemed to be pulling more & more seaweed loose. Are they common here? I don't watch the sea a lot, but I see seals occasionally -- but I can't remember seeing an otter at Pennard before.'
