TW3: 28 June - 5 July: Orca!

Three sightings of Orcas this week in Shetland including this superb adult bull off South Nesting which gave great views. Referenced as Orca 014 and one that can be recognised very easily by the notch on fin and the scarring on the saddle. I last recorded him among a pod of 5 animals in Lerwick in August 2007 attacking Eiders (the pictures that made the Daily Telegraph web site and broadsheet) and it was also recorded off Eynhallow, Orkney in July 2007.
