Rechecked all the beaches nw of kinlochbervie this afternoon. No sign of him. I plan to recheck sandwood beach in the morning; it's actually only a four mile walk each way, so not so bad. I might then try balnakiel. Good 4G on klbervie pier, looking across to where he was first seen here.
Does the animal look well?
Oh dear. That's surely not right. I wish I had seen this video before. He looked magnificent in the stills taken on North Ronaldsay and great too in the video as he swam below the cliffs of Caithness, but here he looks thin, starving and very weak. How sad. He's not put in an appearance at Balnakiel beach yet (I'm still looking) and, looking at that video, I fear he may never be seen alive again anywhere.
