Thank you to all those that turned up on Saturday to help watch the sea and answer queries from the inquisitive public. Your help was appreciated. Particular thanks to Steve and Lindsey, Dave, Andy and Laura and Fiona. Although we didn’t on this occasion see any cetaceans we ended up with quite a bird list and at least one mammal … a Grey Seal as well as educating a good number who braved the chilly westerly breeze.
It’s National Whale and Dolphin Watch this week so I shall again be holding a sea watch this coming Saturday, 4th August, at the eastern end of the promenade from the bench half way up the slope at Overstrand. Everyone is welcome to come and join the watch for any length of time they can spare between 10am and 4pm. Free roadside parking is available along Clifton Way NR27 0NG. There has already been a sighting of Humpback Whale and three Minke Whales further north off Flamborough Head today; so I’m hopeful of these moving south by next weekend. Maybe this year we can see more than the Harbour Porpoise that entertained us on last years watch.
