More big blubber! and more Risso's and other stuff from the ferry...

We did another Ferry survey yesterday/today aboard the Stena Europe. Although weather was not quite as good as we hoped, we still managed four Risso's sightings , two Common Dolphin sightings and eight porpoise sightings,  sadly all the risso's were \a bit distant for photography but Steve managed to snap these commons speeding into our bow!
Whilst confirming our trip for tommorow with Nick o' Sullivan, skipper of the Celtic Wildcat, he told me that whilst shark fishing today they were surrounded by up to 30  whales... sleepless night ahead!
