Strumble Diary 30/5/16

Arrived at Strumble just before 10am to low cloud and a light northeasterly breeze. It soon cleared and I settled back to enjoy the sun and hopefully some porps. A short time in I was joined by Mr John Rees and his family from St Dogmaels who'd previously been on a couple of boat trips with us. Cliff arrived shortly afterwards and we got on with spotting. Sightings were slow and fleeting throughout the morning with no more than two or three pairs and the odd individuals moving through the tide race. A similar scene to yesterday's session. A small seal approaced to the delight of John's little daughter Gracie and it was lovely to see the delight on her face at seeing it. On processing the images I noted a calf almost glued to it's mother it was so close and maybe it was the same one as captured yesterday however we can never be certain.

Note the calf tight at it's mother's side.
