Yesterday (12/11/2013) I saw a cetacean at Rattray Head that I couldn't identify.
I was just looking out to sea (through 10X bins) at some Eiders when it surfaced very briefly, I did not see a blow and did not see it again. It was not very far offshore
It was larger than a Bottlenosed Dolphin, it was pale brown, had a lot of scarring on its back and a fairly small dorsal fin.
Due to the scarring I thought of Risso's Dolphin but it did not have a large dorsal fin and it was brown not grey.
Having looked at books and photos on the internet the only likeness I have come up with is Cuvier's Beaked Whale!!! Any other ideas?
