Strumble Rissos

Sighting from Ray W at Strumble Head pinched from the Pembrokeshire Birds Blog - I had at least 7 and possibly up to 12 Risso's Dolphin; one pod about half-way out, the second on or just inside the tide race. There were no calves and the dolphins ranged in colour from dark to very pale gray. They were active and there were two spectacular breaches. And for Cliff, the Porpoise calf that was tail-slapping a couple of weeks ago was at it again (was the same one I wonder?) this time perhaps worried by the proximity of the Risso's rather than the seal as was probably the case last time. Thanks Ray.
