THE Pembrokeshire walrus is back on the county's coast again, having been spotted sunbathing on Tenby lifeboat slip this morning.

As holiday makers flooded to the town due to the relaxation of the 'stay local' coronavirus regulations, so did Pembrokeshire's most unusual marine mammal.

The walrus first popped up last Saturday, March 20.

The rare marine mammal recently astounded onlookers during its visit to the coast of County Kerry, and has been doing the same in south Pembrokeshire.

It is believed the walrus, pictured here thanks to photographer Gareth Davies Photography, is a young adult, but it is not possible to determine the gender, as both males and females have tusks.

It is thought, and certainly likely, the Pembrokeshire walrus is the same as the visitor to Ireland.

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, posting on social media after pictures of the walrus in Pembrokeshire were shared, said: "The white blotch on the left fore-flipper on both images, and similar tusk length confirm the walrus in both images are the same individual.

"This is an impressive distance of circa 250-plus miles travelled over a six-day period, which is well within the capabilities of such a large marine mammal who can maintain average swim speeds of four mph.

"Walruses, despite their bulky frame and clumsy appearance on land, are surprisingly strong and agile swimmers capable of long ocean swims."
