More summer footage of minke whale swimming around an offshore platform in the North Sea

A few weeks ago, another minke whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) was observed swimming around an offshore production platform in the North Sea.


The footage ( shows a solitary whale swimming slowly, spending around 15 min around the platform before moving on. This footage is the second collected this year (, which shows that these offshore installations are not just home to hungry porpoises (Phocoena phocoena), but also to much larger, non-toothed whales.
