April 2015 Stena Fishguard Rosslare Survey...

Sea Trust Volunteers: Steve Rosser, Peter Boyle and Nick McIlvenna completed another one of our monthly Fishguard to Rosslare Stena Ferry Surveys today. 

with twenty one sightings over the outward and return surveys with 3 cetacean species including Harbour Porpoise, Risso's Dolphin and our first Minke Whale of the year. 

Sea Conditions were pretty good for most of the survey but unusually the Minke was seen whilst off effort due to sea state going above our SS 3 limit. Luckily it was  close to the ship was seen briefly by Nick  (who was on his first trip with us) and Peter.  Well done lads and thanks to all our friends at Stena Line once again!
