Strumble Head 31st August.

Another good day with the Risso's dolphins with a single then a group of 8 one of which at one point breached ten times consecutively while going east into the bay. The same group came out back west a couple of hours later with what looked like the same individual breaching frequently again. Interestingly they were then followed what we described as a "safe distance" away by two quite large individuals who did appear to be shadowing them ?
While this was all happening I had a very large animal leap totally clear of the water & make an untidy "Belly Flop" type breach, not a Cetacean most likely a Basking Shark.
