Dolphins a Plenty


March and April 2014 have provided some excellent Dolphin picture opportunities, from close into the shore in and around Mousehole.

Back in March we had a resident bottlenose Dolphin who spent a week in Newlyn Harbour.   One of our local experts told me that he was called Nick ( identified based on fin patterns), and had recently been seen in South Wales.

Then on the 13th of April, whilst walking along the seafront at mousehole, I noticed a lot of activity in the water near to the lifeboat station.  Getting closer I could see a pod of around 30 common Dolphins, who spent around 4 hours feeding.
