Porps at Strumble not many, not near

Yesterday I had a quick look at Strumble before the rugby and saw a single porpoise faffing about on the surface It looked like a well grown juvenile. It went down and reappeared a couple of minutes later in the same glassy overfall in the tiderace. This was repeated a couple of times. It may have been a newly independent animal developing its hunting technique searching for food in amongst the gullys and rocks that cause the overflows...
Today I met Malcolms two new researchers Lisa and Jacob (?) we saw a few distant porps , I left them to brave the chilly north west breeze, they sure make them tough on the other side of the North Sea!
