Killer Whale Video

Photo: Killer Whale Video

Had another great day of Killer Whale watching on Sunday, thanks to an alert from Brydon at Shetland Nature. The same pod that I photographed on 2nd July made a repeat performance, moving slowly south from Levenwick to Sumburgh Head whilst staying close to the shore.

I sent my photos from the 2nd to Andy Foote of NAKID, who identified the individuals as ID’s 32 (the big male), 64, 65, 66, 67, plus a new calf (born late 2009 / early 2010).

The light and visibility on Sunday though was poor, so I decided to use the opportunity to have some fun experimenting with video - five minutes of hastily edited highlights can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csWsjaK3fgk (HD version looks best)
