Porpoise, commons and more


Spent July 15 - Aug 8 at Martins Haven - most mornings there appeared to be a loose group of 8-12 porpoise (inc 2 calves) off Wooltack point.

Also group of about 15 Common Dolphin (inc calves) from the dale Princess on the Grassholm trip on 4th Aug.

Also on the 3rd Aug  there was a dead what looks like to me (juvenile?) Common Dolphin at the far end of Marloes beach - the carcase (1.2m long) was in a bit of a state so assume it had been dead in the water for some time - no gulls that investigated were tempted.

Photos attached - apologies for the delay but only just got them off my son`s phone.
