Thar she blows!

Apparently there's a whale making its way up the Thames... (I do love the caption on the picture.) It appears to be healthy, and is a toothed whale of some sort:
Liz Sandeman, a marine mammal medic, went out on a boat to examine the animal and said it looked like either a pilot whale or a Risso's dolphin.

After her close encounter with the creature, she said: "It looks quite healthy and quite relaxed. It's breathing normally and its weight seems good.
I don't quite get this quote from the piece.
There was no immediate comment from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott.
Is he now Minister for Whales?


Picture from the BBC story.

I wonder if it'll get to Putney.
