Experts had thought the 40 foot sperm whale was swimming out into the North Sea to rejoin three other sperm whales on their migration from the Arctic to the Azores. But, according to unconfirmed reports tonight, Moby was sighted near Cramond Island in the shadow of the road and rail bridges across the Forth. "We have had reports from the public that Moby has been seen there but we are unable to say for sure if it is him until we have more information," said Keith Todd, curator of the nearby Deep Sea World. "If it is Moby he is going back into the area known as the trapping area where he is in danger." Mr Todd said there was little that could be done tonight because of the tides and because the river was very choppy, making sightings difficult. "If he does run into trouble we will have to assess the situation and look at all our information." But Mr Todd could not discount the possibility that members of the public, anxious to help, had confused Moby for another mammal in the river.
