An otter has been snapped in Pembrokeshire as part of a county-wide survey of the animals.
Solva resident Ella Black set up a camera after half the fish in her pond disappeared one night in September.
The National Park Authority teamed up with Pembrokeshire Marine Special Area of Conservation (SAC) Officer Sue Burton in late 2013 to ask people to report coastal otter sightings for a county-wide research project.
Since then more than 130 sightings have been logged at Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre in St Davids, with each sighting marked with a pin on a special map, showing how they are distributed around the Pembrokeshire Coast.
We’ve received a number of sightings from people surfing, kayaking or swimming off the coast, but the photo and video evidence captured in Solva shows otters are also exploring the areas around the coast as they search for food.
