Dead Common Dolphin washed up on the Lleyn Peninsula

Thought the group may be interested to see this dead common Dolphin found by Andy Roberts a fellow member of a Facebook Group (Strandlines and Beachcombing) which we are members of.....
Andy says: “Found this poor creature yesterday (Sunday 16th Jan) on the far western end of Hell's Mouth on the Lleyn Peninsula”.

We passed the details on to Rod Penrose who due to it's intact state had asked Gwynedd Council to collect the animal for PM....unfortunately, they have been unable to do so....

Despite being sad /a little gory, I find these finds fascinating....a good opportunity to see the animals in better detail. If you look closely you can see the teeth /scratch marks of other Dolphins on its side.... Dan
PS. The new SeaTrust site looks great! Well done guys!!
