Another day with no porpoises... Whats happening?

Yesterday I spent two barren hours looking for porpoises at Strumble Head and Fishguard Harbour in the morning. Last evening Richard Nichols invited me on his boat and we motored up to Strumble Head, arriving there at around 8pm. We cut the engine and spent two idylic hours just drifting back to Fishguard on the tides edge. Not one porpoise, no feeding birds, plenty of Plankton, I dont understand this... Today and Sunday as part of Wales Biodiversity week we are running a "Porpoise Picnic" (today 11.45 - 14.30) Sunday 14.00-1600. weather permitting.
Lets hope its not porpoiseless picnics...
