Eight more sperm whales wash up dead in Germany

A further eight sperm whales have washed up dead on a German beach, just days after around 16 other sperm whales were found dead at other sites on the North Sea, including the UK.

The eight whales found near the north German town of Friedrichskoog were young males, and were reported to be lying close to each other in an area of the Wadden Sea national park.

Work continued this week to remove the sperm whales from beaches at Hunstanton in Norfolk, and Skegness.

It is not clear why so many whales have washed up in the region recently, but it is thought that the sperm whales may have got lost and entered the North Sea, where the sea floor is not deep enough, causing the whales to become disorientated and die.
