Tuesday 3rd October

common dolphin

Instead of fog today we had wind – lots of wind! However in the bright blustery conditions, conditions were ok to run a two hour trip and we had an exciting sail (and rather a lot of splash). It was worth it though, because a long way out we spotted some feeding gannets which showed us where there were common dolphins. They were initially hard to spot in the choppy conditions but soon came over to inspect us on the boat, and gave everyone some good views. We also saw the splashes from tuna feeding and some grey seals round the island. The diving gannets were spectacular.
