Call me “Is that real”? Terrible pun, I know, but what wonderful news in the SCMP (subscription required) about Hong Kong’s first humpback whale sighting, out in the East Lamma Channel. This picture (from the Government information service) of the humpback’s tail flukes is superb.
This news comes on the back of another amazing cetacean scene; this time filmed by the BBC, and reported on the BBC website, of humpback whales snacking on (relatively) small bait balls. I was also pleased to hear Sir David Attenborough narrating the bait ball scene, which is for the new BBC wildlife series “Nature’s Great Events: The Great Feast“.
