Monthly Sightings Maps

Each month we produce a map of cetacean sightings reported in Orkney. These details are also forwarded to Orkney's County Recorder and the Orkney Biological Records Centre.
If your sighting isn't on the map, please let us know about it. Late sightings are always welcome... we're all about the data at OMMRI!
