A beached whale found in an estuary almost 1km from the sea has left marine experts perplexed.
The creature was found at the Humber Estuary in East Yorkshire, it is thought that it may have become stranded in shallow waters before being swept inland by the tide. Only three rare Sei whales have been stranded upon the coast of Britain in the last two decades.
Marine experts have been left baffled after a rare whale was found over 800 metres from the shore in the Humber Estuary, Skeffling, East Yorkshire.
