After lectures, I headed back down to the coast, this time with Matt, and whilst scanning the bay, Matt suddenly picked up on a small pod of dolphins moving through the bay! Sure enough, we were treated to great views totaling 7 Bottlenose Dophins! The pod of three eventually moved around to Gylly where we encountered a the second pod of four all performing brilliantly with one individual even swimming on it's back and jostling the others in its group. They truly are a social animal. 2 Great Northern Divers were also in Falmouth Bay.
Today started out rather damp and drizzly as I made my way down to Pennance Point for some sea-watching. It was uncomfortable to say the least to sit on the slippery wet rocks at the edge of the cliff but viewing conditions were as close to perfect as they would get for finding cetaceans. Sadly no dolphins this time but 2 Harbour Porpoises made up for this. I also logged a total of 4 Great Northern Divers in the bay, 2 Mediterranean Gulls and a flypast Peregrine.
