Dear all 

In The Netherlands, whales have been brought to extinction  
centuries ago. In recent years, we experience some sort of a return  
of larger cetaceans and I try very hard to carefully document  
whatever happens in the southern North Sea by collecting sightings 
and documenting the  material with descriptions, pictures and the 

Sometimes you receive material that triggers imagination, but little 
else. Anyone out there having a clue what  animal we are looking at 


(not just a name please, but also why this  should be the species 

Any help appreciated. For those wishing to know what happens  
down here, check out the recent lists of sightings at
