    HERE IS THE LATEST NEWS ON THE WHALE THAT HAS SWAM UP THE THAMES.

    IT IS A BOTTLENOSE NORTHERN WHALE AND THEY CAN GROW TO THE SIZE OF A LONDON BUS. THIS IS A YOUNG ONE AND THE VETS SAY THAT THEY THINK IT IS IN GOOD CONDITION.

    THEY TEND TO SWIM IN GROUPS OF ABOUT SIX AND WILL STICK CLOSE TO A COMPANION IN DISTRESS. ANOTHER WHALE WAS SEEN NOT FAR AWAY FROM THE THAMES SO THEY DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE IS IN DISTRESS.

    THE WHALE HAS NOW BEEN LIFTED IN AN INFLATABLE CRADLE ONTO A BARGE AND WILL BE TAKEN INTO DEEPER WATER BY ANOTHER BOAT IF THE VETS THINK IT HAS A GOOD CHANCE OF SURVIVAL.

    THE COST SO FAR OF THE RESCUE IS OVER £50,000, SO KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED. THE WHOLE OF ENGLAND IS WAITING AND WATCHING.

    Thanks for the update on the Whale's progress, Margaret!
    Now does that mean Prince Charles won't be able to take Penelope out to supper tonight? <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    Pam, they are probably dining at home, alone!!!!!!!

    The prognosis for the Whale is not looking good! Thanks for bringing the topic
    here Margaret.

    Fingers crossed. We are all watching and no doubt it is on the news on
    your channels in the US…?

    SAD NEWS……. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    IN SPITE OF ALL THE EFFORTS TO RESCUE THE WHALE IT DIED ON THE BARGE THAT WAS TAKING IT OUT TO SEA. THEY NOW THINK IT WAS INJURED AND WAS LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO BEACH ITSELF

    SO SAD, THEY ARE SUCH MAGNIFICENT CREATURES.

    I haven't seen the latest news, so that is really, really sad! Had I
    known on Saturday I may have gone to watch, but with an outcome
    like this, it would have given me no joy.

    I too am very sorry to hear the whale did not survive, especially regarding all the efforts that were taken for it's rescue. I'm sad myself because I LOVE animals (I own 3 pets myself). But folks, please, do never forget: there's an instinct in any animal, and whatever you think would help, in most cases does NOT help. I believe that's what is “science of life” or better “secret of life”.

    Yes I too agree with what you have said. It would have been wonderful
    had the whale been saved.

    <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> I lost my post from this morning – my server went into meltdown it was so HOT!!

    Astrid is right – you can't fight what is nature. Very sad, but that's life. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> At least it touches our senses and evokes passion and love about the wonders of life. The whale would have given pleasure to all those who saw it initially and marvelled at it. Now the world weeps for him/her. Amazing!! <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />
