Pod of 5 Bottlenose Dolphins (inc. Top Notch and Calf?) between Newport & Ceibwr

A better day for water sampling with the EA today (Teifi & Nyfer estuaries and coastal sites between)..... On the return journey on a choppy sea between Newport and Ceibwr we picked up a pod of 5 Bottlenose Dolphins (one juvenile).....

Interestingly, and related to Cliffs post below I am sure that today's mother with calf was Top Notch.....with the same 'little one' we saw so much in Cardigan last year (?) and who I was almost sure was the playful mother and calf we picked up outside Fishguard breakwater when working off Strumble last month.....

The video tells the rest....hope you enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0_ItDpbVec&feature=youtube_gdata
