Watch enormous walrus, Wally, as he befriends boats in Porthcressa, Isles of Scilly. PBO contributors Tom and Lorraine Owen were onboard their motorboat Thea at the time and filmed Wally’s exploits. The walrus likes to climb on boats and inflatables and, since March, has also been spotted in France, Spain, Cornwall and Ireland.
It’s unusual for an Arctic walrus to be so far south. Let’s hope he makes his long journey back home soon…
