A young Sowerby's Beaked Whale has stranded alive by the first Severn Crossing! The animal was euthanized by vets at the scene as it was still maternally dependent and there was no sign of the mother anywhere. These rare beaked whales are usually found in waters over 1000m depth so this whale was very lost and would not have survived if it had been put back out to sea. MARINElife has recorded Sowerby's Beaked Whale in the Bay of Biscay on several occasions.
