Bits from the breakwater

A brief visit to the Fishguard Harbour outer breakwater had me watching half a dozen gannets circling off Crincoid Point which in turn showed up the presence of at least two (possibly more) porpoises. We have not seen any Bottlenose Dolphins there for a while but Haydn, a young man from Crundale and his dad had seen four with a small calf in the harbour mouth  earlier  this week from Fishguard Fort. Thanks for letting us know Haydn!

Risso's Dolphin - 1
Common Dolphin - 3
Common Porpoise - very scarce all day until just before I left when they started showing very well.
