Pilot whales rescued after stranding in Scotland

Ten long-finned pilot whales have been saved after their pod stranded on the island of South Uist in the Hebrides over the weekend. Sadly, seven other whales died.

Residents from the island helped to take part in the rescue which was coordinated by British Divers Marine Life Rescue while complying with lockdown restrictions. Over three days the local beaches and coves were searched for any stranded whales, some of which suffered injuries from rocks.

The pod was last seen swimming out at sea between Uist and Skye.

Pilot whales are usually found in deep offshore waters but are the species most commonly encountered in stranding events.
