Now how hard can it be to spot a whale? Well if it's the one that's been sighted off the Norfolk and Suffolk coast recently, on today's showing, the answer is, pretty tough.
A bit like the Loch Ness Monster there have been photos and some people say they've seen what is thought to be a humpback but as Kate Prout found out, if it is out there, like Nessie, it's playing hard to get.
