A large pod of Humpback Whales were seen today just offshore from Middle Lagoon, adjacent to North Head and they were seen to be breaching and cavorting for quite some time.Even after the so-called end of the "whale season"(it is presumed that most are on their southern migration) we are still seeing whales in the northern waters in one of their socialisation areas.Apparently it may be that not all whales take the migration,especially young bulls who may not be of mating age.
Again, Eyesoncountry calls on the State and Federal Governments to declare the area a Marine Park and endeavour to undertake further studies in this internationally significant region.
