Carlos, a humpback whale has been spotted near Texel since December 2008. Didn’t you gift on the ferry from Den Helder to Texel recently? (I cannot find your post [Image Can Not Be Found] ) This one was seen in the last week of December and the first weeks of January and February. See https://waarneming.nl/soort/view/1389?lang=en&local=nl According to a Dutch article, it seems to have settled near Texel and it concerns another humpback then the one spotted near IJmuiden in May and November 2007. Isn’t that cool?!!
Humpbacks are extremely rare to be spotted near the Dutch coasts.
