New footage of the ‘dolphin’ swimming in the murky River Nene has emerged – but some are still not convinced and think the unidentified animal is a seal.
Earlier this week we reported that food blogger Poppy Everitt filmed a marine mammal cruising past her workplace at North Brink in Wisbech.
The mobile phone footage shows a finned black silhouette swim through the brown River Nene, popping up out of the water for less than a second.
Now, fellow resident Richard Priest has provided a closer and clearer look at the ‘dolphin’ which can be seen spraying water into the air.
Some people on social media are still not convinced, with one person claiming it is a seal and that they “come up and down the river occasionally”.

Ms Everitt, known online as @onmydinnertable, said: “I saw the dolphin and contacted British Divers Marine Life Rescue to report it.
“They have seen the video and confirmed this is highly likely a dolphin and not a porpoise due to the fin shape and size.

“I have not seen it again since Tuesday, but marine rescue asked me to keep them updated if I do, they are hoping to track its movement.
“I have also been posting updates about it on my Instagram and it has gained a lot of interest! What an amazing sight.”
