Winter draws on!

Aboard the Stena Europe with Steve Rosser and Verena Bolender, having completed the first leg of our November survey. It was quite bumpy coming over from Fishguard and by 16.30 getting quite dark. I saw the first flash of the Tusker rock lighthouse as Steve spotted a common dolphin on our bow! Soon after we gave in as the light failed, but incredibly we have opened the score. During our absence the crew on the bridge have been recording sightings and Charlie Morley after 40 years at sea recorded his first ever whale, a Minke, seen nice and close -" we nearly ran over it!"- well done and congratulations Charlie!!!
