bottlenose-2 1

Spotted from St Agnes Head as part of an event organised by Dan Murphy and James Agnew of Cornwall Wildlife Trust to publicise Netsafe, a project to ascertain the effectiveness of pingers (devices to ward away cetaceans from nets). About 50 people turned up throughout the day to see what we were up to. About 1pm, 8-10 bottlenose made a very close appearance and could be observed for 15 minutes nearby and for about the next hour with a pair of binoculars or a scope as they made their way westwards past Porthtowan and Portreath.
