Whilst strange, the whale thing does occasionally happen. For example, i used to live in a tiny village (only about 15 miles away now) and that
village is very old (Cardinal Wolsey had a castle there) with many old pubs. On the walls of one of the pubs (right next to the river) is an old black
and white photo of villagers posing with a whale they took out of the river by the bridge. The village in question is roughly 50 miles from the North
Sea meaning that not only did this whale happen to navigate the river, it also then proceeded to carry on swimming up. The river in question is tidal
but not particularly wide or deep and certainly nothing like the size of the river Westcoast saw the whale in.
As this was "back in the day", there was no happy ending for the whale in question but the villagers did rather well out of it!
As to the thread in question, it certainly does appear to be a bit "off". Given the location, i think if im honest that i would also have squeaky bum
time. Normally i would think it is definitely something seismic related BUT......... the warm blob in the Pacific may well be involved. By this i mean
the warmer waters affect the krill and other plankton breeding grounds which migrate which mean the birds follow (if sensible) or they stay and then
get increasingly distressed with less resources around.
Again though, given the location i would be concerned without being at panic stage. Yet.
As to animals and earthquakes - there is definitely something in it but the problem with using it to forecast is that animals also go loopy for other
reasons too. This means that after an earthquake has occured it is simple to link the behaviour to them "sensing" the earthquake but this is almost
impossible before said earthquake occured. The closest study was the Chinese Professor who spent around 40 years (or possibly longer) studying the
behaviour of bees and seemed to have a pretty high success rate for predicting earthquakes.
