Pod of 4 Bottlenose cruising past Cardigan Island after Dawn

Out at dawn for a wildlife watching charter....a bit overcast and some drizzle, but fab time to be at sea! Loads of fowl and waders in the river /estuary out of St. Dogmaels, 6 Herons, loads of Curlew, Gannets aplenty at sea and Shearwaters putting on a great show, plenty of Auks. As we sat watching a playful seal cow off Cardigan island, a pod 0f 4 Bottlenose cruised past with a Juvenile in tow. There was other Dolph activity seen from afar during the morning....but here is a short vid of the 4 which I managed to capture...the island is a really noisy place to be in the morning...although camera mic doesn't really do it justice!
