Dolpinothon day two just gets better...

We get about an hour in between arriving in Fishguard and then setting sail again on the afternoon sailing to Rosslare. In that time we have to drive to and from my house , I sort out emails etc try and work out what the weather is likely to do, eat something and then meet the next team get onboard and set up for the next leg. Its hectic but with a calm sea, nice overcast sky and plenty of sightings this morning, Jessica and the Walrus wer still pretty keen to get back out onto the Ship and see what else is out there...
The afternoon session began with the Gambicatsteam (Frances, Helen and Godfrey) joining us, we clocked up more Porpoises, Risso's as well as a couple of enigmatic but distant large whale sightings , all very exciting but also a little frustrating, as they were unresolved as to species.

This morning has dawned bright with a bit of breeze, its not going to be easy on our eyes but with a bit of luck we will add a few more animals to our score!
