Another MINKE WHALE was washed up at Sea Palling today. This 5.8m young female has probably been dead no more than 3 to 4 days. She looked well fed and had no obvious fatal injuries. I suspect she may have got into shallow water on the landward side of the reefs here and couldn’t get back to sea. There will be an entry on Letter from Norfolk tomorrow regarding the stranding.
