Thanks to the OnTheWight reader, Pat York, who has sent in these pictures of what looks like a dead porpoise.
It was spotted whilst out on a walk at Battery Bay yesterday morning.
Pat told OnTheWight,
“Just been back this morning to look on the beach and no sign of the body – obviously washed out to sea on the next high tide. There were no obvious signs of what caused it, no large wounds.”
We think it’s more likely a porpoise than a dolphin because of the shape of the snout, but we’re not experts and happy to be corrected.
