In the Inner Hebrides, a large walrus was seen


Off Mull in the Inner Hebrides, a walrus has been seen.

Lorn MacRae, a creel fisherman, discovered the Arctic animal hauled out on rocks at the Treshnish Isles on Monday.

The walrus was described as "massive" by the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT), who were informed of the sighting.

Before showing up in Iceland last week, a walrus known as Thor was spotted on the south and east coasts of England in late December and early January.

The first walrus sighting ever recorded in the database belongs to HWDT, a marine charity that has been keeping an eye on wildlife off Scotland's west coast for more than 25 years.

In Scotland, walruses have previously been seen.

In Shetland in 2021, a young woman known as Freya was seen.

A walrus was spotted in 2018 near Orkney, the Western Isles, and the Highland coast.

According to reports, it was the first time a walrus had been spotted on the Scottish mainland since 1954 when it appeared in the Highlands.
