Single dolphin of about 6-7ft. Very close inshore near river mouth.
No interactions present.
It is not a porpoise, but I feel it looks more like bottle-nose than common dolphin.
looks like it has had a run in with a boat.
Common dolphin would show the flank markings in the first photograph, so I agree with Mydea.
Yes. I do think it could have been a smallish Bottle-nosed Dolphin and after looking at the link to the article re the dolphin in the river last November I think it could be the same individual. The nick in the dorsal fin can be seen in my photo. Thanks all.
Hi, I think this is a solitary bottlenose dolphin that has been seen round the south coast for a little while now. If he is the same one he was named nick after the cut in his dorsal!
