Weekend whale and dolphin bonanza In the Irish Sea

Pic's Steve Rosser
Verena, Rich and Peter  started the thing off see previous posting: "Flat Calm Irish Sea" a summary of their Friday/Saturday Sea Trust Stena  Europe Survey. Steve Rosser, Steve davies and new volunteer Sarah Allen and the Walrus finished it off ! Short of time at the moment so I will let Verena put in the stats later but it was quite simply a Whale and Dolphin bonanza, not to mention our lovely porps!Highlights abounded but a distant glimpse of a Humpback Whale was perhaps sidelined by the Minke which defacated next to the ship and then proceeded to chase it like a dog! That even impressed our Captain, Bob Wheel and that takes some doing!
