Suffolk: Killer whale in our seas
ONE of the world’s largest predators has been spotted in seas around East Anglia.
A killer whale was spotted off the Norfolk coastline last Thursday at Sheringham and was believed to have made its way through Suffolk waters.
Eagle-eyed birdwatchers Giles Dunmore and Phil Vines were scanning the sea with telescopes were astonished to pick up a harbour porpoise and a killer whale.
“I can’t estimate how far out it was but I suddenly saw an area of disturbed water and then this black hump came out of the sea and a great big, black dorsal fin – then it disappeared. It was heading eastwards,” said Mr Dunmore, from Beeston.
