Old friends passing by!

Whilst surveying the seemingly desert like, turbid brown waters of the eastern Bristol Channel, I got a text from Michael Rich , ace photographer and Sea Trust supporter from Reading. He had been on Skomer and seen a porpoise with calf off the Garland Stone. Thanks for taking the trouble Michael!
Having abandoned the Vigilance to predicted rain, tempest and fog and got the train back home this afternoon, the weather forcasters mislead us again and the "Vigilance" made its way around Carmarthen Bay in reasonable conditions . Mate/Bosun, Martin clocked the first Sunfish of the year , well done Martin! Thanks to Skipper Mark, Environment Agency scientific officer, Karen and Martin for their help and support , and thanks to Gerry Walker of Briggs for letting us aboard their vessel!
