December 26th, 2015. Christmas Day beach walkers in mid Wales had a surprise when they stumbled across a dead whale that had been washed up.

The mammal, thought to be a minke whale, was discovered at Ynyslas beach, near Aberystwyth, Ceredigion on Friday.

A coastguard spokesman said a marine expert would take samples before the whale was removed.

Walker Shirley Tunley said : “Over 40 years of Christmas morning visits by the Tunley family but this is a first.”

Reports of stranded whales or dolphins should be made to the Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme on 0800 652 0333.
