Norfolk Cetaceans – 16th October 2015

Janet Ellis reported a small whale on Overstrand Beach at first light this morning. Despite searching soon after the report I could not re-find it on the rapidly rising tide. From her excellent photos it can be determined this is a freshly dead young male emaciated MINKE WHALE. It may wash up somewhere else along the coast.
