Whales in Bergen harbour

A pod of grindhvale (pilot whales) have been spotted in and around Bergen harbour. About one hundred including lots of mothers and babies. The locals are justifiably very excited. Lots of good pictures here.

This joyous event comes on the same day that Norway voted with Japan and Iceland at the ongoing IWC meeting in Jersey to block the establishment of a southern Ocean whale sanctuary.

The irony is crushing!
