Lots of Bottlenose Activity off Cemaes Head

Lots of Bottlenose Activity out of Cardigan over the past week...

Took 'Razorbill' up to the annual river blessing in St.Dogmaels yesterday, and then out to sea for a couple of dives inside Cemaes Head. Between 14.30 and 16.30 ish there was an ever moving feeding ball of Gannets (I would say in excess of 30 birds active at times) and prolonged Dolphin activity spread from Cemaes head out to sea in a Westerly direction. Nice bursts of feeding activity from the Dolphs at times too. We estimated at least 20 animals in total. As per usual our videos aren't worth posting (I really need to get a decent video camera), and the attached shot of an animal which came alongside as we moved between sites isn't terribly good either....but here it is anyway.... Great day to be at sea!
