Friday 30th June

rissos's dolphin face

After a fairly good run of weather, June has finished on rather a miserable note with a lumpy westerly sea state and some soggy drizzle! As has been the case the last few days though, the wildlife made up for it this morning, with lots of Risso’s dolphins spotted, a couple of which came over to the boat to do a spot of bow riding. They were coming up higher out of the water today, meaning we could see some faces and dark eyes watching us! It was too choppy today to head further offshore so didn’t find any common dolphins today, however we had some good views of seals at the island and the seabirds, including Mediterranean gulls.
