Strumble Diary...A pleasant summer evening of Porpoises !

Firstly Steve Berry saw both a Bottlenose dolphin  and then later a porpoise with a calf off Pen Anglas on Monday sorry I picked this up late Steve!
Yesterday Ian Coote and myself saw a porpoise with a calf last night off the Outer Breakwater and then went off to Strumble. The sea was flat and the tide pretty low but there were several porpoises showing nicely as well as at least two mothers with small calves. Although we see small calves throughout the year it looks like they are peaking at the moment. ON the ferry today weather looks really calm on the Irish side , coulfd be good!
