Bottlenose dolphin off Saundersfoot on Tuesday....

Dear Mr Benson

Please find attached some still shots from my video footage taken last night a short distance from Monkstone Point off Saundersfoot. The video footage is approx. 23mins long and has a file size of 3.6GB, so not the easiest file to share with others. I will try and trim it down some before sharing it. Please do not hesitate to contact the office if you would like any further information.

Thanks for this Andrew,  its realy interesting as bottles are rarely reported from the south coast of Pembrokeshire indeed they are rarely seen outside of Cardigan Bay. We will pass this on to our collegues in Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Group who hold a large catalogue of  photo ID pics of Dolphins from Cardigan Bay although from what I can see there are no obvious markings. Perhaps the video might hold more clues.

It would be really good to get any more sightings of this animal but please do not chase it or harrass it . Most times they will come to your boat if they feel so inclined as this one obviously has with Richard.!
