‘PI’ the Humpback Whale returns to Scilly!

17th December 2022

‘PI’ just off Deep Point this afternoon

Over two week ago, ‘PI’ the Humpback Whale made a return to Scilly after last being seen in the winter of 2020. It was sighted on and off throughout those couple of weeks off the south end of St Mary’s. After a few attempts over that period of time, it was today that I finally caught up with it off Deep Point with Robin, Richie and others. In the late afternoon, it was observed, as it moved from west to east, hugging the Deep Point rocks. In over an hour, it was on view most of time, always at close range, and was briefly joined by a few Common Dolphin. There were also some 600 Kittiwake, streaming west with over 20 Mediterranean Gull off Toleman’s Point as well.

Hopefully ‘PI’ will overwinter and give me another chance to get out and kayak with it like I did on Christmas day two years ago in The Roads!!

Before all this whale watching, Richie and I tried out the gulls at high tide off Porthloo. As a result of note there were 2 Yellow-legged and 5 Mediterranean Gull and on the beach were 5 Black Redstart.

Economic Collapse & Growing Inequality

We’ve had 12 years of disastrous Tory rule, hyper boosted by leaving the European Union. And now, the dramatic decline in the country’s infrastructure, pubic services and living standards have seen frustration and anger growing amongst a sizeable portion of Britain’s population. And that discontent is now being channelled into concrete action, in the form of strikes by workers right across the economy. Railway workers have halted the transport network. Border Force staff are withdrawing their labour, ironically seeing post Brexit Britain even further away from taking back control of its borders. Postal workers, bus drivers and civil servants are either striking or on the verge of striking. Criminal Barristers took successful strike action a few weeks back, and won an enhanced pay award. And then there’s the nurses and paramedics, who’ve just staged their biggest walkout in decades. Teachers in Scotland are striking next month, with their English counterparts pretty sure to join them as the latest paltry pay offer has been rejected. But the PRESS barons in the Mail, the Sun, the Express and the Telegraph want us to believe it’s the UNION barons who are our enemies, that we should somehow be on the same side as these tax dodging multi billionaire non resident newspaper proprietors, apologists for this far right government, who are determined to turn this wave of strikes into some sort of class warfare. A framing that unfortunately seems to have been adopted and followed by presenters on the BBC and ITV. And make no mistake, Rishi Sunak and his team are most definitely on the side of the bosses and the 1%. I appreciate all of you who share my videos with friends and social media to get the word out there. Together, let’s bring this extreme right wing government to an end.

Unlike those weird new right wing TV news channels and ultra right wing “think tanks” that are always on the telly, I receive no hidden funding. Or any funding, come to that, except YouTube partner programme advertising revenue, and YouTube $uperthanks donations from viewers. As well as sharing the videos on social media and with your friends, hitting the Like button and subscribing to the channel is also really helpful, as it tells YouTube to offer my videos to a wider audience.

I love to throw sticks at trees! I also can’t get enough of music! I also blog about my observations on Scilly and wherever I go around the world and what’s sometimes on my mind. I’ve visited over 30 countries and some more times than once. I’ve worked and volunteered in Nepal, USA, Peru, Gambia, Costa Rica, 3x Australia, and refugee camps in Palestine The profile image is one I took while in Palestine of a brave Israeli holding high the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli Offensive Forces during protests in Belin
