Rare humpback whale spotted in English Channel

Humpback whale

A humpback whale, believed to be young, has been spotted in one of the world’s busiest shipping routes in the English Channel. The sighting is so unusual that fears have grown concerning the whale’s health or potential to strand on the shore.

The humpback whale is one of the most energetic of the large whales with displays of spectacular breaching, lobtailing and flipper-slapping being common. Male humpbacks also sing the longest, most complex songs in the animal kingdom. However, they are usually found in the North Atlantic, the North Pacific and the Indian Ocean, not the English Channel!
