Dolphins - Rissos and Common Short Beaked

Post by virtualheb » 24 Jul 2013, 17:05

On Monday, were lucky enough to see a whole host of dolphins, seen en rooute from Lewis to St Kilda - Sea Trek trip, going out we saw about eight to ten Rissos, then nearing St Kilda - common short beaked ones, and also again common ones en route back to Lewis

(hope I have identified them correctly)
