Dolphs, Solitary Porp....and the Cemaes Seals are back!

Another pod of around 8 animals below the Mwnt this morning....One particularly large animal and a couple of youngsters among them....sat drifting for a while, until another boat arrived, so we left.....

Some extremely happy guests too! Choughs & Ravens as well as the usual suspects....also got to watch the Peregrine bothering a Fulmar.....

A solitary porpoise in the middle of the bay as we crossed to Cemaes (we sat a while, but only one animal observed). However, the biggest treat of the day (for me) was to find that the seals have come back to the haul out beach!!

I've been talking to Cliff about their absence and have been scratching my head as to what may have changed (they have returned some 6 weeks later than last year and previous year...and even then there were always a few about)....admittedly only 8 seals observed, 3hauled out (including a bull).....but 8 more than we have had for weeks....lets hope the trend continues!
