Mr Mercer said that the whales were not keen to re-enter the water.
"When we got them in the water, they swam back to shore further down the beach," he said.
"Despite efforts to help them out to sea, they kept coming back."

It puzzles me this whale beaching, what is going on in the water?
This pod didnt want to go back in. Is there something attacking whales? Megaladon?
Or could it be they want to commit suicide?
Beaching themselves is certain death, so what is in the water?
i dont believe they lost their bearings their instinct at least would take them back in the water once they go into shallow water.
There must be something scaring the carp out of them (pun intended)
A report released yesterday by a panel of scientists, conservation organizations and government agencies have positively linked a mass stranding of whales to sonar used by Exxon/Mobile during an offshore survey. In this case, the whales fled the area prior to the seismic phase of the survey, which shows that even this type of sonar (also used by military and research vessels) is devastating to whale and dolphins.
