No interactions present.
This animal had been present for several days appearing at the same time of the tide. Fin and Sei were excluded on size - it was relatively close inshore and the size is not apparent from my photo which was taken at 6 am. Apologies for not including a comment on size in my initial submission.
If you are happy about the size David then I'm happy to agree with your identification to species level, though usually Gill's comment would be valid.

I have seen fin whale on 2-3 occasions overseas and minke whale on around a dozen times in Britain (mainly west coast of Scotland) and am very confident on size of this individual.
