Minke whale baby boom

Increased sightings of juvenile minke whales off western Scotland during 2015 could be down to a mini baby boom according to experts.

A survey team from the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) have recorded 28 young minke whales in the area, three times the average compared with previous years. They also recorded the highest annual number of common dolphin sightings.

WDC’s own researchers working on the Isle of Lewis also saw an increased number of juvenile minke whales during this summer.
