22nd November: Orcas!!

On Saturday afternoon, a group of Orcas (Killer Whales) were seen in Loch Leosavay at Amhuinnsuidhe! One adult male (massive dorsal fin), and we believe an adult female and 3 calves. Orcas are the largest members of the dolphin family. There is only a small population present in the Hebrides, ranging over large distances and constantly on the move. As a result, sightings are pretty rare.
