Strumble Diary: Not so far away...

Porpoise action off Fishguard Harbour outer breakwater least 10 porpoises were seen congregating off the harbour mouth.This included at least two mothers with small calves. 
They sometimes come here to feed as the ebbing tide empties the harbour, a kind of ambush point.Not brilliant pic's as soon after we arrived several boats came in sending the porp's back out to sea. On inspection of some of Cristina's footage there are two calves creche-ing  in the vicinity of a buoy. Its something we have seen before, mothers leave calves near a buoy and go off to feed before coming back to pick them up!
