A slightly delayed posting due to last Sunday's boat trip taking priority over the image processing. A trip to Strumble on the 29th August saw very little Porpoise activity in a brisk NW wind. I did manage one sighting of a mother and calf and got the shot you see below. Seals on the other hand were showing well. At low tide when the water dries out between the lighthouse and the mainland a deep sheltered pool forms on the east side nearest the lookout. It was to this pool that the resident bull brought two females for a romantic liason. At one point they were singing to each other which is quite a haunting sound if you've not heard it before. They spent a good twenty minutes in close proximity before moving out as the tide flooded in.
