Not yet….

I’ve spent quite a while on the coast this week. You could easily find me looking wistfully out to sea. Why? Well, it’s big fauna time. The beginning of November has for the past few years been the period when large whales have occurred off Norfolk; particularly ‘Humpy’ our returning Humpback. Unfortunately, not this year. Or at least, not so far.  Unfortunately there are no large flocks of feeding gannets or divers offshore either which gives a clue as to why the whales have not arrived. There are no fish! The Herring don’t appear to have arrived here as yet. So if there’s no food on the table why come to the party! This is endorsed by the fishermen locally who tell me ‘there’s just nothing doing’.

Given the year has been a bit ‘topsy-turvy’ weather wise and autumn has not really bitten us as yet there may still be time for something to happen. I’ll keep on looking. In the meantime here’s a photo I took this summer in Canada of four humpbacks together.

Humpbacks in the mist.
