    Freya is the first of her species to be spotted in the Netherlands in 23 years with the animals normally seen hundreds of miles north.

    It comes after Wally the wandering walrus captured the imagination of wildlife lovers with his European travels this summer, which included stops in フランス, スペイン and the Isles of Scilly before he was last spotted in Iceland.

    Jeroen Hoekendijk, a Dutch scientist who specialises in marine mammals, discovered Freya last week and said she appears to be in good health, にもかかわらず a raw wound in her front flippers.

    She is regularly seen bathing and sleeping on the back deck of HNLMS Dolfijn.

    It is thought Freya may have been in Dutch waters for two months after a number of sightings and experts believe she got lost while looking for food.

    The Arctic walrus has small tusks so is considered to be younger.

    The Royal Netherlands Navy Submarine Service shared the news, 言って: ‘Look who surprised us with a visit.

    ‘Welcome on board shipmate!’

    The navy has been updating keen followers about Freya’s movements on their social media pages.

    HNLMS Dolfijn entered service in 1993 in the Dutch Navy’s Walrus-class, alongside HNLMS Walrus and HNLMS Zeeleeuw.

    The RNSS said: ‘Wondering if Freya thinks it’s such a beautiful spot when there’s constant staff and boarding.

    It’s thought she paddled down from her regular Arctic circle haunt, travelling via Denmark and Germany to reach the coast of Holland.

    Wally started its European tour in March this year and was often seen hauling his 800kg body on to a boat for a snooze.
