Orca Watch is back for 2019! Running from 17th May to 26th May, Sea Watch Foundation will be based on the cliffs of the Caithness coast in northern Scotland looking for the UK’s elusive resident orca pods.
This last week has been an interesting for the whale watching community everywhere. On the morning of 25th September a Beluga Whale was spotted in the Thames Estuary just outside of London and the country has been somewhat gripped by his plight. There’s been concern for his well being ranging from monitoring his swimming patterns to ensure he doesn’t end up too distressed and to ensure that well-meaning people hoping to catch a glimpse of him don’t venture on to the water to further stress him as he navigates the unfamiliar environment.
