Mwnt Bottlenoses

Sightings from Winnie - Wonderful dolphin sighting at Mwnt on 1st september. it was a beautiful sunny day, with clear, still water.

there were 5 or 6 adult bottlenose dolphins and 2 calves, close to the beach, they then swam slightly around behind the mount, still very close in to the shore, causing a great deal of excitement with all the holiday makers on the beach.

They were just milling around, seemed to be playing and enjoying themselves, I watched them for about 40mins, from about 2.30pm, before they headed of.

They were breaching, tail slapping, playing together, was an amazing sight!
