Birds' Rock

Up to the Lookout on Monday afternoon. A beautiful, clear day and a flat, calm sea. Apart from a couple of seals, 30 minutes observation yielded just two porpoises slowly moving west. During the Summer months this is a fairly reliable spot for Bottlenose, but on other Winter observations I have had many more sightings of porpoises than of dolphins. I know this is only anecdotal, but I wonder if anyone else has noticed this apparent change of species in the same location? (Bird Rock, Newquay)
