Stena Ferry Survey Fishguard-Rosslare Wed/Thurs 20/21st Aug.

Weather not as good as forecast (whats new?) but still pretty disappointing for Steve Rosser and Ed Stebbings our volunteer survey team. only a single porpoise and a small pod of common dolphins seen on the outward leg  with two porpoise sightings and another small pod of Common Dolphins on the return:
"The common dolphins on Wednesday were behaving unusually. They were breaching but the tails were not leaving the water, more like jumping and splashing like the big whales do. Not travelling."
All in all not such  a good trip saved by the Great Shearwater. (a first for Ed!) 
Tight lines
