Hamelin bay Pilot whales beached again

It's happeend again, back in 2009 we were staying down there when the whales beached themselves, 100+ of them and none survived

 

Has hapepened again 9 years on to the EXACT day, this time 150-200, my parents are down there at present, Hamelin bay is closed to the public.

Not good
