Dead Dolphin?

Just back from day out at west angle, pembs.
Saw what looked like a dolphin washed up on the high tide mark . Looked like it had been there a while but thought I should report it


Hi Steve,

Update  hi Steve I spoke to Rod, Rod was aware of this one a Common Dolphin  and two others In South Pemb's one of which was taken for post-mortem initially it was thought  to be by-catch eg. caught by fishing boats then discarded but apparently the examination was inconclusive.
