News from the Isle of Man

Over 90 Harbour porpoises heading south
Brian Maddrell had a wonderful collection of porpoise sightings in the late afternoon on Wednesday 14 October.
For over an hour a constant stream of harbour porpoises swam past Dalby Point, all heading south.
Luckily the sea was mirror flat calm and the animals could be seen across the water from close to shore to 3 or 4 miles away. In total Brian recorded approximately 92 animals swimming quickly down the coast.

This snippet from the Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch website may be of interest especially those who see unexpected flocks of porpoises !
Much as I love Pembrokeshire the Manx scene looks pretty exciting!
