Wally the wandering walrus is spotted in Iceland


A walrus previously spotted in Ireland, France, Spain and the UK has turned up in Iceland, marine experts have said. The 800kg (125st) Arctic walrus, known as Wally, had not been seen for more than three weeks, with spotters saying they were “starting to lose hope” of ever seeing him again. However, Seal Rescue Ireland said he had been seen in Iceland on Sunday after 22 days of no sightings. He was identified from scars on both his front flippers, the group said. The wandering walrus was thought to have travelled 4,000km (2,485 miles) before reaching Ireland, with the new sighting in Iceland meaning he had swum more than 900km (560 miles) from his last known location in Cork.(BBC)…[+]
