One day in March (I think) 2007 I was walking along the beach at Magheraroarty when I came across a large crowd watching two diggers preparing a sandy grave for a beached whale. I had a portable camera, as one did in 2007. I am unsure what species it was. I hope this one didn’t have the fate of a 2015 juvenile sperm whale stranding.
Sadly this not exactly unknown on this coast:
