Whale Watch

There are many whales seen in our area but few sightings are formally recorded - so there is no evidence of these. So, if you see a whale, please:

- Take a photo and/or note the fin and tail shape, plus any markings

- Note the time/day/location

Then e-mail this info to our local Whale Watcher by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
