Fin Whale Lynmouth beach

Posted by Strandings Officer on Aug 10, 2011 11:45:38 AM

We've had several reports of a fin whale at Lynmouth beach in Devon. Its on a very popular beach in the middle of summer so unsurprsingly the press is all over this one! The animal is approximatly 55ft and believed to be female.

 

Our CSIP collegues are also all over it and I believe will be performing a post mortem today.
