Norfolk Cetaceans – 12th September 2017

A MINKE WHALE was reported to me yesterday by Peggy Manning in the River Great Ouse at Downham Market. When the animal was originally seen it was alive but unfortunately succumbed last night and was last seen yesterday evening on the east bank of the western channel 50m south of the A1122 where it crosses the river to the south west of the railway station.

Despite an extensive search of the channel between Kings Lynn to south of Denver sluice this morning I was unable to locate the remains which have been removed by the tide overnight. Photographs however clearly indicate it was a young Minke Whale.

10+ Minke Whales reported off the Yorkshire Coast today (per RBA). Over the next week or so these may pass the Norfolk coast as they travel south. May be worth a look at the sea!!
