Dolphins

Have seen Bottlenose Dolphins off the Azores and Atlantic Spotted off Madeira, also once saw a pod off St. Ives in Cornwall, but did't know the species.They are wonderful, so graceful, fast and agile!Lucky to see them off the Welsh coast.

Welsh dolphins

Like the Moray Firth, Cardigan Bay has a resident population of bottlenose dolphins, together with harbour porpoises and both grey and harbour seals. I went out with http://www.dolphinsurveyboattrips.co.uk/ on one of the trips that gathers data on the dolphins. We saw more than this one but I just wasn't quick enough to get more photos!
