As I said in yesterday’s post, we have been visited by large pods of orca. This is someone my wife knows who had a close encounter…

The boat is in the foreground of the picture.

So far this year we have had dolphins – pod of about 40 of them. Orca, humpback, Minke and also a Sperm whale.

We set the camera trap up near the stream and got some great rare birds. We caught a male teal as well as some grey wagtails. Not to forget the regular snipe, oyster catchers and mallards, including a pile of ducklings. We haven’t managed to catch the otter, but one of the Oyster catchers spend ages preening itself in front of the camera so we got loads of footage of him having a right good clean.

  1. Just before the 4th of July holiday, here in the US, we had the opportunity to visit the Atlanta Aquarium. They have 4 whale sharks in the large central aquarium space, without the up close encounter, you really don’t get a sense of how massive some of the ocean going creatures really are!
