    Those are very nice pictures of the pilot whales spyhooping! Yesterday a humpback whale was sighted in the Dutch harbour of Rotterdam. I went all the way to Madeira to see whales and now there is a humpback whale very close to the Dutch coast. Fortunately people form the harbour have been able to guide the whale out of the harbour, which is not a very safe place for a whale. And now it remains close to the coast, even breaching. It is very unusual for a humpback whale to show itself in these waters. Hopefully it will find its way back tot wherever it belongs. Kind regards, Saskia
