Thousands of miles from home, a walrus dozes on a beach in Scotland's Orkney Islands.

It's been called a "once in a lifetime event" for a walrus to be spotted so far south of the Arctic Circle.

Nonetheless, the young male appeared to be in good health, and happy to be the centre of attention.

In the past, the animals were hunted for their blubber, ivory and meat, but now numbers are recovering.
