I didn’t expect to see a Walrus this Sunday morning (!) but nonetheless, this Walrus was found to be having a snooze at Bridesness, North Ronaldsay! It’s thought to likely be a male due to the pinkish nodules on the neck and shoulders. The animal does not appear to have sustained any injury and could just be not used to encountering humans; probably why we got so close. Simply unbelievable!
