From Phil Lees,

At Point St John yesterday afterrnoon for the Ramsey gig rowing race. After all the boats had gone we watched a mother porp and calf make their way up the northern part of the Sound and out into the bay on the flooding tide with 2 Gannets diving around them - great stuff!

All the best.

Also severeral porpoises seen distantly from the Fishguard outer breakwater yesterday afternoon. I have just noticed this posting from Ray Wilkinson from the bird blog from last Thursday ...
There were several porpoises in the tide race at Strumble and 2 common dolphin beyond the race, heading east.
