Flying Walrus seen in Somerset

Yesterday a flying Walrus was spotted in the Avalon Marshes. The 2 ton Walrus had migrated from its former home at the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth and had come to rest beside a Saxon longhall at the Avalon Marshes Centre. A local naturalist commented on how unusual it was to see a walrus in the Avalon Marshes and an especially rare sight to see one flying one during its migration. No twitchers were harmed during its arrival.

The Walrus is a replica of the Skuldelev 3 Viking trading ship from Denmark.
