Humpback Whale Strands in River Thames

Thursday, 01 October 2009 20:50
A Humpback whale was found dead under the Dartford crossing on September 12th.

Initially reports of a whale blow being seen led people to believe that another Northern Bottlenose whale was in the Thames but the body of the animal was then recovered and determined to be a juvenile male weighing six and a half tonnes. A subsequent post mortem has determined that the whale may have died from starvation
