Boats herd whales ahead of military exercise

The BBC have reported on a number of boats being used to herd northern bottlenose whales from Gare Loch (Argyll) in preparation for Europe's largest military exercise (Joint Warrior). The military exercise is due to begin on Saturday, with an operation to move the whales taking place Thursday morning over the concern that sonar used by warships could impact and distress the whales.
