Spotters of otters.

Wildlife chiefs are asking people to turn detective and spot otters in the Kielder Forest.

Otter expert Kevin O'Hara, from the Northumberland Wildlife Trust, will be leading a trek through the 155,000-acre wood this Sunday to look for signs of the mammals' presence, including footprints.

Experts believe the local population could have quadrupled over the past decade though national numbers have nosedived.

The trek sets out from Kielder Castle at 1pm and costs pounds 3 or pounds 2.
