Report of Bottles from Skokholm Blog..

"The highlight of the day came in the form of Bottlenose Dolphins when at least 30 animals were watched heading east in the early afternoon (and a minimum of six back west in the early evening".

The Skokholm Blog

I bumped into Chris Grayell an old mate who crews with Voyages of Discovery who also reported seeing Bottlenose Dolphins off The Smalls with Commons. In over 15 years of small boat surveys and ferry surveys we had never recorded Bottles out there. I have to say I was a little skeptical but a second report from another reliable source seems to have nailed it.
So are these Oceanic Bottles that have started to visit us or Cardigan Bay Bottles that are moving further afield?
