Strumbling with Stevo!

Thursday 3rd March
Chris and I went to Strumble Head at 10am- 11:15am. We saw 18 Harbour Porpoises feeding in the ebbing tide. With several gannets feeding over them
Cheers Stevo

I had also paid Strumble a visit earlier in the morning and seen quite a lot of porpoise activity although the tide race was very rough and the porpoises were in a low profile mood.
They were often extremely difficult to detect were it not for gannets betraying their presence. Having spoken to Stevo, his report actually refers to 18 sightings some of which were of more than one porpoise. I would be surprised if there were any less than 50 individuals present. Good work Stevo, and also Chris who is a great help to Stevo'!
