Porthcawl Porpoises After 2 blank surveys in March April is looking up. I did an hour today at Rest Bay and spotted 4 porpoises. I started doing these surveys in May 2014 and today was survey number 61. It was significant because I have now recorded porpoise in every month of the year. Numbers are low and they are usually so far out I need my 30x magnification telescope to spot them. The old wives tales locally of porpoise being a sign of hot weather or of following the mackerel are disproved. They are present 12 months a year.
