Adorable video captures otters playing in Lincoln river

It’s definitely a rare sight in a city

An adorable video captured the moment when a trio of otters started to play with each other in a Lincoln river.

Kathryn Turner sent in the cute footage from the river leading into the Brayford Pool and said she captured it on Tuesday morning.

The video shows how the otters had been paddling in the water before, one after the other, they all dive under to play.

Despite otters almost disappearing completely from the country’s waterways in the 1970s, a hunting ban has seen numbers slowly rise.

Although by no means a common sight, there is an increasingly good chance of spotting an otter in Lincolnshire.
