Mum and Cubs at Bosherston Lilly Ponds

The three otter otters seen in the Eastern Arm and Central Lake at Bosherston Lilly Ponds Stackpole. At one point an otter, which I took to be the smaller of the two cubs, was on its own swimming in an agitated manner and making short high pitched squeaks, cub calling for mum? or mum calling the cubs?

  1. A comment today from Bob Haycock on otter cubs in his photographs, was that they always had their eyes open, I always looked on them as being wide eyed youngsters, however, is it a characteristic of young otters that their eyelids don't develop until they are a certain age?
