Killer Whale sighting - Norfolk

Very excited by this as it is up the road from our chalet

BBC News - 'Killer whale' sighted off Norfolk coast at Sheringham

We have seal encounters fairly regularly but this would be an awesome spot

OMG, I would love to have seen this!

I have seen that Sheringham is only just over an hour away from us, unfortunately I am stuck at work & can't go whale watching

Re: Killer Whale sighting - Norfolk

Not sure how I feel about that. It's sometimes quite sad when something is where it shouldn't be!

There are 2 possibilities apparently, it has wandered off course or they have discoverred the rich pickings in the seal colonies off that coast.

The report doesn't mention it but there is an argument for the latter as porpoises have washed up that have evidence of being killed in a way that demonsrates how a whale teachs its young to hunt.
