Rare whale found mysteriously in Yorkshire field

Marine biologists are apparently baffled by the discovery of a rare breed of whale found dead close to the shoreline of the Humber Estuary.

The 10 metre baby, believed to be a Sei whale, was found in salt marshes near the village of Skeffling. It is believed that it got stranded in shallow waters and struggled to escape the outgoing tide.

According to The Telegraph, this particular area has seen an increase in the number of sightings of whales this summer, possibly due to a change in sea currents.

This is the third dead whale to appear in this region in the recent months and some experts believe it could be due to changes in ocean currents bringing colder streams of Arctic water into the shallow North Sea.
