Sea Trust Strumble Porpoise Watch "Spring has Sprung"...Byoiioyng!

We had not managed to publicise our Easter "Spring has sprung" Porp' watch at Strumble very well, apart from a few posters and our mail list but the twenty odd people who turned up had a treat in store!
Our seemingly resident Risso's Dolphins spent at least an hour showing off and playing hide and seek in front of us. Happily we had several pairs of our new 10x25 compact binoculars with us so everyone was getting a good view. There were at least five probably six. At one time one breached repeatedly if distantly. Great sightings of porpoises grey seals and diving gannets contributed to a show worthy of one of David Attenborough's epic wildlife documentaries!
