Rare sight: Walrus basks on Scottish island

1 post in this topic

A walrus has turned up on a small Scottish island in what has been described as a "once in a lifetime" event.

The animal, thought to be a young male, was spotted on the shoreline of North Ronaldsay in Orkney.

It appeared to be in good health and happy to be the centre of attention.

Wildlife experts said it was extremely unusual for a walrus to be spotted so far south of the North Pole and Arctic Ocean.
