Where’s Wally Now?


How could any of us forget Wally the Walrus who stopped by in Pembrokeshire earlier this year on what would seem to have been quite an extensive tour.

Entertaining keen watchers in places as far apart as Ireland, France, Spain and the Isles of Scilly, Wally settled for a while in Tenby before heading off to continue a summer tour that surprised even the experts.

Everyone hoped it would be a journey homeward – home being somewhere in the Arctic, But when Wally seemed to disappear from view for over 20 days it was feared our strange traveller was no more.

But fear not. Weighing in at about 800kg Wally has been seen again in Iceland much closer to his natural home. Experts have confirmed that the images of a young walrus have been examined and it has been agreed that, based on distinct scars and marks, that this is indeed Wally.

I am sure you will join us in wishing this incredible creature well in wherever life takes him next.

Kitty knows that she will always be an incomer, but this is to be her sixth summers. The wet and grey days of winters have not diminished her love of Pembrokeshire, but she is always grateful for the golden light of spring and summer. Her love of the sea sustains her even through the darkest of days and she can often be found at high tide bobbing about in Fishguard harbour at high tide, often with seals in attendance. When not freezing in water she is usually at her computer. She says" Pembrokeshire.online has been an opportunity to celebrate this beautiful county and its people. Keep the stories coming. We love to hear from you."
