Although it was a somewhat damp and dreeeeeek forecast that greeted us today, the sea was like a sheet of silvery grey, slightly crumpled shimmery foil, stunningly beautiful in the dull morning light… but excitingly, giving us the most perfect conditions for spotting any black fins or white splashes on our dedicated 4 hour wildlife cruise. So very exciting to behold, as I just love and adore these wintery months as they are always so productive. It wasn’t long before the shout went up.. Harbour Porpoise at your “nine o’clock”! Followed within just a matter of minutes of our first sighting with a Whooop Whoooop Whoooooopeee.. Common Dolphins at your “eleven o’clock”! This then happily continued every ten to fifteen minutes as we headed south along the stunning and dramatic Lizard Peninsula as further hunting, maternal groups of Common Dolphins were sighted and recorded, continually coming in on the new flooding tide to feed throughout the rich and sheltered waters of Falmouth Bay… such is the productivity and numerous bait fish shoals currently in the bay…

Delightfully, Great Norther Divers again also happily gave us some stunning and close up views along the way, and the sheer numbers of Seals currently is an absolute joy to behold, giving everyone some truly magical views and photographic opportunities as yesterday’s dedicated fun filled and exciting 4 hour wildlife cruises was happily full of photographers all merrily click, click, clicking away..
