Porpoise washed up on Runswick beach.

Out on the sail training boat James Cook we would often see porpoise in groups of two or three about a mile offshore. Lewis Clark (whose front door opens right onto Runswick beach) has just sent these pics of a recently washed up porpoise. For which many thanks.

glad I didn't come across it whilst I was there, what a shame. Do you get this often or is it quite rare?

Oh poor thing. How sad. :-(

Capt Shagrat, I've seen a dead adult seal and this porpoise in about 10 years of beach walking.
