Killer Whales!

Here is a record shot of one of the 3 Killer Whales we saw off Dalsetter and Troswick earlier this afternoon. Even distant photos like this can prove useful in identifying individual Killer Whales. The fin shape (unusually rounded at the tip) and 'indent' on the rear edge means we should be able to get a 'match' and I'm certain we've already found it in the Killer Whale ID catalogue - have sent this image away for confirmation. Will update once we get a response. Thanks to the crew of the MV Good Shepherd for discovering this pod and getting the news out!
