Things that aint common seem to be commoner, things that were common getting scarce!


Conditions perfect , tide right, sunny and even a few spectators but Porpoises hardly put in an appearance at our second biodiversity week event. We used to call them common Porpoises before the yanks lumbered us with Harbor Porpoise, either way they aint common around Strumble at the moment.

Shirley Mathews who is spending a week on Skomer (Lucky Shirley) saw porpoises in Jack Sound and from the "Dale Princess" others have been seen off the Garland Stone.
She just rang to tell me that on the last boat over to the island several commons were seen from the Dale Princess. Common Dolphins used not to be common inshore but it seems they are this week!
