Risso's rumble past the Mumbles! (Via Glamorgan Bird Club/Steve Rosser)

Hi Cliff
I have tracked down the Glamorgan Rissos. Two (possibly 4) were seen and photographed on Thursday morning just off the Kenfig River. They were heading in the direction of Mumbles.
I am excited about this because it is just about my patch. The Kenfig forms the boundary between Bridgend and Port Talbot and one of my regular fishing marks is only about a mile east.

I have had reports of Risso's in that area before and also Pilot Whales in the past. I am told there is, or was a small scale Squid Fishery off Bardsey that may be some explanation.
