Common Dolphin from Port Eynon
I've been seawatching from Port Eynon the last couple of mornings. A feature of both sessions has been the large movement of Manx Shearwater passing, some at very close range. Also, an almost constant group of approximately 50 to 100 Gannet in a feeding party between Port Eynon and Worms Head. That feeding party worked towards Port Eynon this morning and underneath I observed 1+ Common Dolphin breaking the surface with one very nice breach. Conditions were far from ideal, making following the movement through the water hard to track, and video capture remained beyond me before the feeding party started working back towards the the Worm.
