Earlier in the week, from Stevo...

Thursday 30th August

Dad, Tony luxton and myself went to Mwnt at 1pm but we saw nothing for about 3/4 hours.
At 2pm we started to see 2 Bottlenose Dolphins but we were never absolutely sure that
it was 2 dolphins at the time that we were watching.
They were milling around in the area of the headland.
It was quite difficult to pick out with a a stiff north north westerly wind in our faces.
The Bottleenose Dolphins were still there for about 3/4 hours until we left mwnt headland,
We had a brilliant day and great awesome sightings.
It is such a peaceful place to visit to watch
