Mystery beast on the beach

Thanks to Hamish for this picture of a mystery animal he took during one of his visits home. Did anyone else see it?
Hamish also has another Harbour related memory for us. Does it ring any bells with any of the Gurn's older readers?
'In addition to harbouring drifters and smaller local fishing vessels two colliers - the Swift and the Wisbech - arrived there from time to time from Stockton-on-Tees with cargoes of coal for John Gordon the Coal Merchant. I believe they may have carried timber from Nairn to Hartlepool on some return trips. The colliers were registered in Aberdeen and owned by two brothers by the name of Smith.'
