They were there... they were here!

A busy week concluding with a Stena ferry survey Friday/Saturday undertaken by Kelly Thomas and myself. Kelly from Porthcawl, was one of the first to take part in a Stena Ferry Survey back in May 2004 after a couple of initial trial runs made by Adrian Rodgers and myself in April 2004.
Conditions were far from easy, SS4-5 overcast with drizzle yesterday, and SS4-5 but sunny with lots of glare today. None the less we managed to spot both Porpoises and Common Dolphins on both sides of the channel so well worth the effort.
To be honest, Kelly spotted most of what we saw although she has been keeping in practice in New Zealand and Australia spotting Dusky Dolphins, Sperm Whales, Indo Pacific Bottles and Humpbacks!
Welcome home Kelly!
