Bardsey Bottlenoses


From Andrew Clarke - Just a quick message to let you know that I encountered a pod of at least nine Bottlenose Dolphins moving rapidly south through the Bardsey Sound (SH 144 234) on Saturday 13th March, between 1323-1333 hrs while out walking the coastal path. Weather conditions were good; dry with broken stratus and little glare, a northerly wind force 4 and excellent visibility. Surprisingly no other cetaceans were seen - there's usually a few porpoise in the tide race. (Apologies to Andrew for not getting this on Whales in Wales sooner)
