Yes, a beluga whale was spotted splashing around in Britain's River Thames, and Brits can't quite believe it.

The RSPCA said: "We are working with other agencies to monitor the situation and ready to provide appropriate assistance if requested", it said.

While the report of the animal prompted excitement on social media, conservationists warned that the beluga whale, normally found in the High Arctic, was lost and could be in trouble.

Known as the "canary of the sea" due to their chirps, clicks and whistles, beluga whales can range from 13 ft to 20 ft in length and have distinctive round foreheads, known as "melons".

A beluga whale has been spotted in the Thames, between Gravesend in Kent and Tilbury in Essex.

Marine mammal scientists at the Whale and Dolphin Conservation has been monitoring the wale in case it "live strands" on the sandbank.

"In the summer of 2015 two were spotted off the Northumberland coast and one in Northern Ireland", he said.

In 2006, a whale died after it swum up the Thames into central London despite efforts to rescue the animal. They have a rounded forehead and no dorsal fin.

They are common to many regions of Alaska, as well as Russia, Canada, and Greenland.

Belugas are able to produce sounds such as chirps, clicks, whistles and squeals, giving them the nickname "the canary of the sea".
