Strumble Diary 31/01/2018

Well,  after the calmness of yesterday it was back to the seasonal norm today with a good westerly gale blowing and a distinct drop in temperature. I tried to get out a bit earlier today to make sure of catching the action as the window of opportunity can be quite narrow on strong ebb tides. Indeed that's what it proved to be with all of the action coming in a 35-40 minute period between 09.30 and 10.10am. In that time I saw between thirty and forty porps moving through quite quickly but in the conditions only managing to get around a third of them in the lens. The light was poor to start with but opened up later and typically at the end of the action so the images are not the best but a record all the same. Two marked animals again today one with a notch out of it's fin and the other with a lighter pigmented patch on it's fin.
