Drones capture whales feeding off Spanish coast

The graceful sea mammals, which can reach up to 24 meters in length, were captured in 700 hours of film by the EDMAKTUB Association.

For the past seven years, the association has recorded how common fin whales come to feed up to six miles off the coast south of Barcelona and Tarragona in Spain's northeastern region of Catalonia.

Some of the whales return to the same stretch of coastline to feed.

"Of more than 132 whales observed, 10% have been seen in previous years," said Eduard Degollada, EDMAKTUB association president, who added each animal can be identified by marks on their heads.
