A humpback whale was spotted swimming along the Zeeland coast, between Zoutelande and Vlissingen.

Hank Perree of sport fishery Wiesje recorded the animal first spotted the animal swimming 80 meters away on the left side of his boat. The whale then swam right behind his boat for a while.

"He was really big. And had some big warts. He looked healthy and swan in the direction of Terneuzen at his ease", Perree said to Omroep Zeeland.
