Wow! - 6th September 2014

Bottle-nosed Dolphins
There were actually dolphins at Durlston past the dolphin watching point. First, there was a circle of white water near a fishing boat and seconds later a pod of Bottle-nosed Dolphins rose to the surface.

It was quite unusual to see them as close as they were, so I was very fortunate. But unfortunately, there was one boat that felt the need to drive along side the dolphins scaring the life out of the poor creatures. Then more boats came, a diving boat, a Sunseeker, you name it, and followed them up the coast. Furious!

There were at least two calves in the pod.

The blowhole is visible in this shot.
