Sea Animals in the River Thames – level 3
Two thousand marine animals swim from the ocean into the River Thames in England every year, and there are many types of animals.
In 2016, a seal climbed onto the beach near the London Eye. In 2017, people spotted a porpoise near Richmond.
Most recently, people saw a Beluga whale near Kent. They named him Benny and said that he is lost as he should be in cooler Arctic waters.
Difficult words: London Eye (a giant Ferris wheel sitting above the River Thames), porpoise (a small-toothed whale similar to the dolphin).
