Monday 7th August

minke whale and common dolphin
We had excellent views today of a minke whale feeding in the bay with common dolphins all day. The minke’s blow was very visible from a fair distance away which caused some initial discussion about the species ID but it was a minke. The bay was full of dolphins in small groups here there and everywhere. We also saw some porpoises in the afternoon, and lots of grey seals. Seabird sightings included gannets, shearwaters and storm petrels.
