    Northern Bottlenosed Whales Greenock

    Lol It’s ok to not get the exact spot. Just knowing that it’s east of Arran is good enough 👍 Which basically means that my map skills aren’t that good

    Northern Bottlenosed Whales Greenock

    Thanks Delia, So it’s actually East of Arran. You wouldn’t have thought it would be that deep then?

    Northern Bottlenosed Whales Greenock

    Hi John, Do you know how deep the Arran Trench is? I can’t find out, Online, where it’s located. Only that a trawler once sunk there?

    Northern Bottlenosed Whales Greenock

    Someone said some stranded at the Faroes very recently as well. Sadly that’s one of the worst places in the world for them to strand. There was a report around 4years ago of 4 feeding in the Sound of Rassay in February/March a couple of years ago. I was meant to be on a boat trip that same day...

    Northern Bottlenosed Whales - Greenock

    2 Northern Bottlenosed Whales were at Greenock yesterday near Glasgow. Someone on Facebook says there still there today. https://www.inverclydenow.com/pod-of...e-at-greenock/ You seem to get NBW in this area not annually but almost annually. There was 1 hanging around in the same area for...

    Trying To Get Stoats On A Trail Camera

    Thanks John & Neil. It’s a small wood which has badgers & foxes living in it as well. I’ll try early morning to film the stoats myself. Thanks as well for making it clear that stoats are out 24/7(especially at this time of year). That’s good news I’ll report back with anything I get. Chris

    Trying To Get Stoats On A Trail Camera

    Hi, Could anyone advise about putting out food for stoats, to get them on my trail camera? I took an abandoned/lost stoat kit to a rescue recently. It is doing well. I had seen the mum moving the kits but she didn’t come back for this one unfortunately. I was hoping to get a video of the mum...

    UK roadkill stats

    Sounds about right - a gamekeeper that doesn’t have a normal amount of brain cells. A gamekeeper got sacked, local to me, last year for snaring a Badger. He admitted the snare was his but said that he had deactivated it. And his defence was that animal activists had put the badger in the snare...

    UK roadkill stats

    I’ve seen plenty of dead badgers in the middle of the road. And every dead badger I have ever checked has appeared to be a genuine road-killed Badger. Badger baiters(as long as they kill badgers at the sett where they have dug them) usually bury the bodies in the hole they have dug, to take...

    Fin Whales off Lewis

    Fin Whales getting seen by Hebridean whale cruises on yesterday’s trip (I think) The North Minch seems to have exploded this year with cetaceans. But you get your good years and bad years so it doesn’t mean that it will be like this next year unfortunately.

    Fin Whales off Lewis

    The killer whales went north/west past Ruah Red lighthouse when I was staying there on the 29th of June. However the couple who saw them at 5pm didn’t bother to tell anyone else until 8pm. Tomato Head of lewis next to the Bridge To No Where is the best place that I have seen cetaceans from...

    Whale Watching Madeira

    Thanks Tim, That’s a great list in just one trip to Sao Miguel. We got Sperm Whales with futurismo 4 times and 5 species of dolphins. I’d like to go back. We didn’t get a good feel about Moby Dick Tours so I’m glad we decided to not go with them. I had a dolphin species from the balcony...

    Whale Watching Madeira

    Thanks for the advice everyone! I’ve done 2 trips on Ribs. One with Ventura and one with Lobosonda. Both good trips. On both trips I saw BND’s & Short Finned Pilot Whales(a new species for me). I was hoping for a big whale but I know it’s unlikely at this time of year. I’m seawatching from my...
