PostSubject: Whales in the Humber   Sun Jun 13, 2010 6:54 am

I saw this on the Hull Daily Mail website from Saturday June 12th 2010

Rescue teams are searching for a whale spotted in the River Humber, close to the busy ferry terminal.

Humber Rescue, based at Hessle foreshore, along with a team from the Marine Mammal Rescue Service are searching for the 5m creature.

On Sunday June 13th a follow up report read,

Experts are still searching for a whale spotted in the River Humber.

Teams from the British Divers Marine Life Rescue service searched the estuary yesterday after reports that the 5m-long mammal was swimming upstream.

It was spotted entering the Humber near Paull at around 9am.

Humber Rescue launched a boat in a bid to find the animal.

However, it was not found.

Anyone who sees the whale is asked to call (01825) 765546

It's not the first time a whale has made its way up the Humber Estuary, with a Sperm Whale making it's way up, before dying in February 2006. Also in that year a Humpback whale was reported to have beached and died at Spurn Point.
