A dead whale has been pulled from the Thames, days after a humpback was struck by a boat in the same river.

The whale's carcass was recovered from the water near Town Pier in Gravesend at about 10am today.

It was spotted floating in the water by members of the public.

A Port of London Authority (PLA) patrol boat was sent out to retrieve the whale and tow it back to the port.

A spokesperson for PLA said the whale had to be towed "very gently" so it would remain in one piece and could be examined by scientists at the Zoological Society of London for a post-mortem.

The sighting of a Yellow-browed Warbler in Saanich is the first time the bird has been seen in Canada.
Birding enthusiasts were aflutter in Saanich's Panama Flats Saturday morning hoping to catch a glimpse of a rare warbler never before seen in Canada.

Upwards of 50 people flocked to the park with binoculars around their necks and telephoto lenses at the ready for a shot of the yellow-browed warbler. Some came from the Lower Mainland, Washington State and even California, though none travelled quite as far as the bird, which is a migrant from Asia.

The migratory warbler typically spends its winters in the tropical climates of South Asia and Southeast Asia, and sometimes in Western Europe.
