NSW: WHALES AT ENTRANCE TO THE HARBOUR
 
   SYDNEY, Aug 19 AAP - Two Southern Right whales were at the
entrance of Sydney Harbour this afternoon after swimming down the
coast from Broken Bay, a water police spokesman said.
   A spokesman for Sydney Water Police confirmed that the two
whales, believed to be an adult and a juvenile, were between South
Head and North Head.
   Earlier sightings of the pair since yesterday drew crowds at
Broken Bay, near Palm Beach, and at Manly's North Head.
   A spokesman for ORRCA (Organisation for the Rescue and Research
of Cetaceans in Australia) said the whales were swimming along the
eastern coast as part of their normal migration pattern.
   By law, whales must not be approached in the water and a Broken
Bay Water Police launch reported no problems with surfers, swimmers
or boat owners as the whales frolicked off the beach.
