Killer whales have been spotted on the Kerry coast.
For the second time in just over three months, a pair of killer whales have been observed off Bray Head, Valentia Island.
The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group says the pair are adult males, who are the sole survivors from the Scottish West Coast Community Group, who hail from the Hebrides in Scotland.
Sightings officer with the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, Pádraig Whooley says it’s great to see them returning to Kerry waters:
Killer whales return to Bray Head, Valentia Island, Co. Kerry!
