National Geographic - Blue Whale Enters London Waters

Firstly no... Wally the whale hasn't made a appearance back to the London's capital, this is the work of National Geographic Channel to celebrate the premiere of Blue Whale Odyssey on Tonight (Wednesday 1st April at 9pm) and the launch of its new channel, Nat Geo Wild HD. The Blue Whale tail was on display in the Serpentine throughout yesterday, Tuesday 31st March, and measures in at an impressive 10ft high by 20ft wide, and is based on a Blue Whale 80-100ft in length.

A few months ago it was posted that for the launch of the Eden channel a life size model of a polar bear and cub were floated down the Themes (Eden launch Channel with Iceberg in the Thames)
