The first otter to be spotted on a river in Hampshire for 14 years has been captured on camera.
A camera trap, set up on the Upper Rother was put in place to monitor whether American mink, which threaten our native wildlife, were at large.
But instead it's recorded a young otter visiting the site on two separate occasions since the start of September.
It's been fourteen years since the last confirmed sighting of an otter here - probably because the river hasn't been healthy enough to support the fish they eat.
However the Rother is still failing water quality standards and there's a long way to go. We need to work together to reduce the pollution running off surrounding land.

Strike action affecting First Great Western trains meant reduced services and heavy traffic congestion and persistent heavy rain only compounded the misery.
Rail union RMT has just announced that strike action at First Great Western will go ahead this weekend as planned. The union is protesting over the introduction of new Hitachi inter-city trains. The action follows a 48-hour strike last month and 24 hours of action last Sunday which led to widespread disruption to services.
A final round of talks are expected today in an attempt to avert a strike at First Great Western this weekend.
The RMT union plan to walk out on Saturday, Sunday and Monday in a row over the introduction of new high speed trains. They fear job cuts and the loss of buffet cars.
Around a third of services will be axed if the action goes ahead hitting thousands heading to the Reading Festival.
First Great Western say they will employ more staff and buffet cars will be replaced with more seats to ease crowding.
