The Somerset Otter Group will be taking part in the Coastal Otter Survey of SW England being set up at the moment. Anyone willing to regularly survey a coastal section of the county please contact me. I just sent off 18 sites where Otters have previously been recorded on the county’s coast to get things started. All those surveys and reports over the years is a vital resource for better understanding the otters in Somerset. Please make sure to be submitting your sightings to SERC.                                                                                                                                                                                                                Dr Rob Williams
