Pembrokeshire dolphins

From Zulu Bokke...
Monday 26 August
Halfway between Ramsey Island and Grassholm Island (Pembrokeshire), our tour group spotted a pod of approximately 20 common dolphins.
We then headed to Grassholm from the halfway point. When we got there we spotted seal and 100,000  gannets, but no cetaceans. We then headed to the smalls lighthouse.
When we arrived we spotted what looked like a large Minke whale, but it turned out to be a very, very big Risso's dolphin. We found ourselves in a very scattered pod of about 25-27. We even spotted a reasonably young calf with its mother.
