Steve Rosser's patience pays off with a porp!

Conditions were perfect for a survey on Tuesday so I headed for Rest Bay nearr Porthcawl. The sea was sea state 1 but the visibility was less than 5km. The tide was in so I gave it a go. I was scoping into the mist  and was surprised to see an anchored angling boat appear then disappear. After 20 minutes a porpoise surfaced twice briefly and disappeared into the mist and that was my only cetacean of the one hour survey. A skein of about 20 common scooter completed the day.
