Humpback Whale seen off Berry Head

You may have heard about the exploits of the South Devon Humpback, which was swimming around near Blackpool Sands and Slapton Lea for a month earlier in the spring… Well imagine our excitement to arrive at the cafe one Sunday morning and meet a group of bird watchers who had just watched it travel along the southern side of the headland! Over the next few days the whale was spotted several times on both sides of the headland, enthralling and delighting our staff and customers, and inspiring some whale designs in our cappuccinos!

Our photos don’t do it justice, but this video comes some way towards transmitting the excitement of the visit – thanks to Martin Parker for sharing.

We hope to see her again one day!
