Grey Triggerfish at Whiteford

(c) R. Part
Rein Part sent me this image of a Grey Triggerfish Balistes capriscus that was washed up on Whiteford Beach on 5th January, possibly the same fish I saw there in a more decomposed state on the 19th? A quick web search shows that this rather exotic-looking species has increased dramatically in British waters in recent years.

We saw that on the strand line on Sun 17th January whilst looking for the Snow Buntings and wondered what species it was.
