Rogers finds more Strumbler Risso's...

A call from Adrian Rogers this evening to tell me he had more Rissos this afternoon at Strumble about 6-9 individuals...
Funny thing is Elfyn, they are on the periphery of the bay but not really in it. they are seen around the Tusker , Arklow Banks, Isle of Man, Bardsey and seem to be around here right into the winter but Steve Hartley has been working the bay, a lot of the time for twenty odd years but dont see them.
WDCS have had funding to study them on Bardsey over the years, but I cant find much info on this. I suggested to them some years ago that we should work together but got nowhere.
The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group website has comprehensive info but as yet there is no coordination of effort.
