Sadly, It Didn't Make It

I know I'm a bit late with this but I just thought I'd follow up on my post from the other day.

Unfortunately, London's misguided Thames whale, died on Saturday as rescuers transported it on a barge towards deeper water in the Thames Estuary.

Complete BBC report on the attempted rescue here.

Here's Something You Don't See Every Day



Yup... it's a whale (a northern bottle nose to be precise), and it's actually in the Thames, swimming past London's Houses of Parliament.

The complete story here. More pictures here.

Only in this instantaneous age of the internet would this story, and the pictures to go with it, spread so fast.

Here's some excellent background info. on the species.

By the way... if you just happened to be in London today and snapped some pics of this marvelous marine mammal yourself, you can send them here:
