Well I missed out big time today and I'm very jealous.
Just as I was arriving home from work and expecting Clare off the ferry from Yell I got a call from Clare. The ferry had took a detour to follow a pod of Orcas, 6 in all. As they got closer and were watching the pod the whales all seemed to be getting excited. What Clare thought looked like a smaller whale apparently was a Minke whale and the Orcas proceeded to attack and presumably eat. Well Clare said it rolled on it's side and there was plenty of blood in the water. But then, a honking horn from a van on the car deck, " Oi! I need to catch the Whaksay ferry!" so whale watching boat returned to ferry and the moment was over.
