Sad stranding but better bottles...

Hi! I just wanted to report a washed up porpoise carcass to somone who might need the information. It was a small, but full skeleton, quite badly deteriated. It was on the tideline at Poppet Sands on Friday 25th June. Also on a more positive note, we spotted two dolphins, looked like a mother and calf, swimming off Mwnt on Friday morning Hope this is of help Kind Regards Neil and Jo

Hi both, I will pass on to to Rod Penrose (rodpenrose@strandings.demon.co.uk ) of the Welsh Marine Mammals Strandings Agency, Rod deals with the dead stuff!
...on a happier note Porp-wize, Alison and I spent a few minutes scanning a choppy sea off Strumble where several gannets and gulls were feeding over some hard to see porpoises, much easier yesterday apparently...

Hi Cliff,
another rewarding day at Ramsey Sound, Sun.27th.June, with porpoise sighted moving down the Sound as the ebb tide got going & present in & around the tide race at the south end. Probably 10-12 there, including again, at least 2 calves. Plenty of gannet activity with birds frequently diving amongst the porps. All the best.....Alison
