Port Eynon and Oxwich

From Alan Williams - I was at Port Eynon point, Gower, between 4.30 and 6pm today. A slow 'scope scan produced 26 porpoises thinly spread over a large area to the East of the point. To the West of the point a pod of 6 common dolphins was feeding before swimming over to the East where I had counted the porpoises earlier.

And from Judy Evans - in Oxwich bay, gower  mother and calf porpoise on Tuesday 21st August at approximate 6.45 pm when I was on my kayak in the bay about 5-600 metres offshore.  The porpoises were about 40 metres from my kayak, one much smaller than the other and very close to the larger one. They were heading out of the bay.
