Our most unsuccessful ever New Years Day Porpoise watch was a huge success !

That is to say we had at least 60 people of all ages who came and enjoyed the watch at Strumble, Given we had to cancel yesterdays watch and switch dates for today quite a remarkable turnout! It was just a pity the Porpoises let them down! To be fair with a bright sun and a short choppy sea they might have been there but viewing conditions were abysmal! 

None the less we began our petition to get Strumble protected as a Harbour Porpoise SAC so the "2017 Year of the Welsh Porpoise" campaign has kicked off in style! A big thank you to all our volunteers and supporters that came along to make it such a nice event despite the cold!
Thankfully Easter this year is in mid April so our next Porpoise watch on Sunday the 16th of April should be a bit warmer with the first swallows coming in off the sea and hopefully a few porpoises as well!
