From Andy Rickard...

Hi Cliff, local fishermen Alan and Graham report large numbers of common dolphins near Milford Haven at the moment, also some pilot whales? but dont give out exact position,  large females hundreds of animals...
cheers
Andy...

Hmm..., Fair enough Andy and thank them please, yep we have had a superpod of Common Dolphins with you on the Cartlett Lady at this time of the year in 2009, so happy with that estimate.  Pilot Whales would be unusual but  as we  know not impossible. Risso's might be nearer the mark perhaps, We need to get out there ASAP to suss this out! allthingsgood, cliff

Verena, Stevo and the Walrus had an interesting porpoise encounter off the Fishguard Harbour Breakwater  this afternoon with a female and calf being pushed about by another porpoise, possibly a male intent on procreation? Kinda looked that way!
