Seeing This, It Made Me Remember When I Was A Child And 11 Sperm Washed up On Backaskail Bay In Sanday, December 1994 I Think, Does Anyone Have Any Pics?

Thanks for the photo Linda. I have a site about a strange creature that washed ashore long ago in Orkney - The Stronsay Beast. I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who's seen unusual creatures around Orkney or from people who have photo's like the one above. The URL of my page is here
