A long way for one porp!

Whilst Dan was filling his boots in our "back garden" we  (Verena, Adrian and the walrus), were plying the Irish Sea for the 334th time, in worsening conditions. To be honest the main reason we were on the ship was to test the new mobile recording system we are developing with support from BRIGGS Marine and in partnership with the  WWBRIC team with IT support from Dr Rob Davies.
Our only positive sighting was a porpoise between  Pen Anglas and Strumble  so in some ways we might as well have stayed  at home! On the other hand the mobile recording trial was useful and worked, though it also showed up a couple of (hopefully)  minor glitches that will need sorting out.
