Normal service resumed

This morning out of Rosslare and yesterdays tempest had abated but left a gnarly sea with a bright low sun creating plenty of glare. It was hard work but eventually persistence paid off and two large fins cut through the residual chop on our starboard side, Risso's x 2 and scoreboard open! A long wait but then a couple of Porpoises on the edge of the glare followed by a surprise pod of 15+ Commons off Strumble. A bit of a grueller but conditions seem to be inproving so am looking forward to this afternoon with Elizabeths team!
