Irish Humpback link

Cliff,
I expect that you know all about this and may even have seen the pictures. Here is a link to BirdForum and the Mammals and Sea Life Forum

It's not a million miles from the Pembrokeshire coast - wouldn't this be a sight to see at Strumble.

Hi Colin,
yes well worth a look.
I have seen a humpback breaching off Strumble! It was in June 20005 with Chantalle Bloomink and Bethan Cox. Bethan spotted its spalshes as it breached about a mile and a half out, and then Chantelle identified it through the scope. I even got some film, not brilliant but good enough for a record - showing the diagnostic long flippers!
