A later post than normal for me but the events of the day prevented it being any earlier. What a morning. Two hours spent on the north breakwater watching Apache, Ringo and ten or more other bottlenose  around the harbour entrance and deep inside the harbour to where the fishing boats are moored. At one time they would have been visible from Sea Trust HQ without the need for binoculars. The wind and swell made for some difficult viewing conditions and I lost sight of them on a few occasions but overall it was just wonderful to spend that time out there. Several times they scattered fish as they moved inside the harbour and they eventually made their way across the bay to Needle rock and seemed to have a shoal of fish pinned against the coast. One of the best shots of the day came at this time as one leaped from the water with the cliffs behind. Needless to say I left with a rather large smile on my face. These are only a sample of the images taken as there's too many to post here now but I will try and pop a few more on if time permits.
