Old friends back in the Vestfjord

From the 1980'ies and up to 2006 Killer Whales where a regular sight in the Vestfjord between the mainland and the Lofoten Islands, as they followed the herring to their wintering grounds from October. But then the herring decided to change their migration route, and started wintering in the open sea in the north-west, and with them the Killer Whales disappeared.
However - every now and then the Killer Whales come by on «scouting trips» to check out if there are any signs of herring in the fjord. And last week they where here - a group of some 20 animals - some of them well known individuals from twenty years ago!
