18-04-2011 : WHALE SONGS CAN BE HERAD THOUSANDS OF MILES ACROSS THE OCEANS

Have you ever heard a song on the radio and then ended up humming it all day well you are not alone the male humpback whales do the same.

Scientists from Australia have found that whale mating songs are picked up and copied by other males.

These sounds sometimes thousands of miles across the seas and oceans.

The humming happens during the breeding season when the males sing songs to attract females.

You wont spot any Whales on your Canal Boat Holiday but we can still promise your very own nature watch.

The canals are easily accessible and free to explore on a Canal Boat Holiday and they are the ideal destination for nature lovers.

As you gentle cruise along the canals on your Canal Boat Holiday you will get back to nature and have a chance to see the wildlife close up.

In fact as you are cruising the canals you will find that the wildlife comes to you.

Ducks and swans feed on the duckweeds that floats in the canal and the reeds growing at the edge provides food and shelter for damselflies and dragonflies.

Wild flowers are abundant on the canal banks and these attract a host of butterflies and insects.
