Rogers Risso's

Adrian Rogers is a bit of a star when it comes to spotting winter Risso's. We had some in Fishguard Bay off the Stena Europe in December but not brilliant views so it was nice to hear they or others are about ...



Good Morning Cliff ,

While at Strumble this morning i had two encounters with Risso's Dolphins , firstly at 10 a.m. two heading into Fishguard Bay beyond the tide race at approx the 1 o'clock position then at 10.45 a.m. four came out of the bay beyond Mackeral Rock . These were three adults ( one quite large ) & a smaller individual which may have been a younger animal.Also three Porps this morning in the tide race at 11 a.m.

Best Wishes
Adrian
