Norfolk Cetaceans – 6th August 2020

Photographs have emerged on social media of what appears to be a male BOTTLE-NOSED WHALE off Weybourne today. Perhaps one of two animals. This is the prime time for this species to be moving South but it would normally go to it’s wintering grounds via the Atlantic not the North Sea. Given this is a deep water species I would ask watchers to be mindful that the animal has a high chance of stranding and would not normally be close inshore.

A belated report of a BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN in Brancaster Harbour seen and photographed by Vicki Franks. This animal appears to have a large propeller disfigurement on the dorsal fin and should be easily recognisable if seen again.
