2009 06 17 87635 keeps going and going (hopefully with her calf) to Iceland Print E-mail

The latest report from Dr Alex Zerbini and Dr Phil Clapham of NOAA.

Our girl is definitely pointed Iceland-wards now.  This was yesterday, and she's due to report in again tomorrow if all remains well.

 

 

"Still haven't had a truly appropriate name for her... but thanks for all the suggestions, including those in bad Icelandic.  Dr Steve Katona helpfully suggested "Fugawi"* which, since this project is named after him (KAribbean Tagging Of North Atlantic whales) is, I suppose, his perverse right!

*as in "where the... etc?"  Yes, you're allowed to groan."
