This afternoon Jens and the walrus went down to Strumble in the hope of catching up with the Risso's. We had not been there more than a few minutes when the distinctive fin was seen briefly moving with the rising tide from beyond the lighthouse. The northerly winds of recent days allied to a big tide messed up the sea and the Risso's  kept us guessing as they surfaced briefly and randomly. There were at least three but maybe more such was the difficulty in tracking them. I made several attempts to get some images but managed nothing more than a fin tip! I have snapped lots of Risso's over the years but just getting this one was quite a challenge and i was quite chuffed when I got it!
