From Lizzie Harrison up North, Risso's

Yesterday we were sailing from Barmouth to Anglesey. When we were halfway between Bardsey Island and Rhosneigr (Anglesey), we sighted around 4-5 Risso's Dolphins. They came very close to our yacht, and spent a few minutes swimming under and alongside us. I have some photographs which I can send you. Is there any further information you would like?

Wow! well spotted and identified Lizzie they are seen reasonably frequently in the Irish sea but not many people recognise them. It must have been quite thrilling having these big babies coming close up and personal!
