23rd Apr 2014

This week has been a week of firsts for our Wildlife Officers!  Both the ORCA survey team, wildlife officer Kerry Heseltine and passengers on board Brittany Ferries Cap Finistere and Pont Aven sighted the incredibly rare spectacle of breaching Sowerby's Beaked Whales!

Not only that, but Sperm Whales, Fin Whales and Striped Dolphins have all made an appearance between the UK and Spanish ports.  Wildlife Education Officer Anna Bunney has also had a great week of sightings on board DFDS King Seaways between Newcastle and Amsterdam, including Harbour Porpoises and White Beaked Dolphins!
