Wet and Blustery Early Morning Trip....Brightened up by Bottlenose Dolphins

Regular Bottlenose activity continues out of Cardigan....

Having made passage from Newport this morning, and as per the title.....we met a pod of around 8 Bottlenose Dolphins off Cardigan Island (immediately off the seaward side) at around 9.00am. It was blustery and wet, but we managed to get some usable footage which we have uploaded to our Razorbillribs channel....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9O2EbpqO1qw

When we first spotted them, a couple were firing large fish out of the water (no footage sadly)....the feeding activity soon ended and we sat drifting for around 15 minutes, during which time they approached us a couple of times....what a great start to the day!!

Out of Cardigan again tomorrow...
