End story.

Thanks to Andy Davies for this image of the dolphin which live stranded several times on the Gann Estuary yesterday before being euthanised. From Andys image it looks like an adult Common Dolphin Delphinus Delphis and from reports it appears to have been in poor condition.The scarring and nicks on the fin and dorsal area suggest it was possibly an old animal.
In the circumstances there is , sadly, little anyone can do other than release it from its suffering.
