Common Dolphins 12:12 PM Sat 8 September 2007 50°N 3' 42", 5°W 2' 12"
Heading South gradually more and more birds came into view… first gannets, flying past, then more Gannets sat on the water along with large numbers of gulls. Fish were jumping out the water as the boat flew past and then there they were... Common dolphins!!!
We could see a group of approximately 10 feeding and then three other groups further out, about 40 in all!
We sat watching them for a time at a respectable distance and then as we moved away, they started to come towards us, riding our bow wave, swimming under the boat and splashing around. They stayed with us for about half an hour……
