Irish Whales

John Cromie (one of our illustrious directors) drew my attention to the very interesting Irish Whale and Dolphin Group website. They're doing some fascinating work, and I managed to enjoyably waste rather a lot of time poking around their site. I was particularly taken with their singing Humpbacked Whales on this YouTube clip: the first time singing Humpbacks have been recorded in European waters. Awesome in the true sense of the word.
