Wanted! British Humpback Whale photo's please
I am going to attempt to establish an online photo-ID catalogue for Humpback Whales in the UK. The frequency of sighting around British water has increased year on year and it would be super if we could start identifying these animals to specific individuals and get some idea of where they are going. The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group already has a fantastic online catalogue for Humpbacks, as well as other species, and it would be great if we in the UK could compliment this. This winter has seen to stunning images captured of the Aberdeenshire animals so it seems to be the perfect opportunity to get things started.
I would be very grateful for any images that people may have, that they are happy for me to upload to a public website. I am looking for the date, location and photographers name, and all images will be full credited.
Please forward anything you may have to:
Many thanks, and once it's up and running i'll provide a link here.
