Stena-Sea Trust Holyhead /Dublin Survey

Dr Tony Gallon led our Sea Trust survey aboard the Stena Superfast Ferry plying between Holyhead and Dublin on the Bank Holiday Monday accompanied by Alesha Naranjit and Frazer Higgins. 

They were fortunate to be blessed with almost perfect viewing conditions which on the return leg produced 14 sightings of a total of 35 Porpoises including a calf. They also had one definite pod of six Common Dolphins. These along with several sightings of animals too distant to properly identify and plenty of sea birds kept the team pretty busy, a highly successful trip!

The Sea Trust team would also like to thank the officers, crew and shore teams of Stena for their support and hospitality!
