Earlier this week, Reserve staff were carrying out a bird count at Goswick at the northern boundary of the NNR, with the added bonus of fantastic sightings of harbour porpoise!
Harbour porpoise are common to UK waters and are regularly seen around the coast of Northumberland in shallower water near the shore.
Footage of 2-3 porpoise surfacing
Great views of the small, triangular-shaped dorsal fin, typical of porpoise
Thanks to Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) for providing help with identification!
