Sparkling in the winter sun

A visit to Strumble this afternoon showed a small feeding flock of gulls auks etc about a mile out in a particularly active part of the tide race. I thought there would be porps out there but with bins it was hard making them out in the choppiness of the tide race. After a while of searching I noticed some occasional sparkles in the waves as the sun reflected of the porpoises as they surfaced. A guestimate aof 10 to 15 but could easily have been quite a lot more . One or two others showed elsewhere and then the wind increased from the NE making further veiwing difficult.
