National Whale and Dolphin Watch 2019

Every year for nine days in late July, Sea Watch Foundation look to wildlife enthusiasts all around the UK to support National Whale and Dolphin Watch, a citizen science project organized by the Sea Watch Foundation now in its 18th year. Volunteers hope to catch a glimpse of whales, dolphins and porpoises visiting the seas around the British Isles. The event this year is taking place nationally from Saturday 27th July until Sunday 4th August 2019 and it marks the long-lasting collaboration between citizen scientists, wildlife enthusiasts, the general public and researchers alike to further our knowledge about cetaceans within UK waters.

I shall be organising a local watch on Sunday 4th August. Everyone is welcome to come and join me on the day between 10am and 3pm to see what we can find in the sea off Overstrand in Norfolk. If you can spare an hour or more to help me I’d be appreciative. 

Please join me at the broken bench on the eastern slope of the promenade at Overstrand anytime between 10am and 3pm. Park on Clifton Way NR27 0NG and walk down the promenade to the sea. The lonely little soul looking through a telescope will be me! I look forward to seeing you.
