Sea Otter and Grey Seals, Caithness.

Lovely benign weather this morning, cloudy and slight drizzle but not cold or windy. Great views of Sea Otter and 3 x Grey Seals around Keiss Harbour and beach.

It is a European Otter that is in the sea. Sea Otter is a completely different species, from say North America.
