A sweet day on the water today with 1 minke whale, 4 icebergs, bald eagles, gannets, guillemots and murres.
It’s been a few days since we saw a whale so this minke was a welcome sight. There was a time when there was a minke whale in almost every cove around our area. It seems, over the years, that their numbers are declining. They are being hunted in Norway and are very fast whales so it is possible that our minke whales are being targeted when they are not in our waters.
