The weather was pretty miserable and the elements looked against us but we still managed to get down to the pier with the camera and digiscope. After about 2 hours of watching it seemed like it was going to be a fruitless day, then just as we were packing up a solitary dolphin made an appearance.
Having arrived to New Quay only a week ago i am still getting to grips with the camera and its set up. As you can see from the pictures above they are both a bit blury and out of focus. Scientifically we cannot use these images to identify this dolphin for our research. However, informally we believe this individual may have been Snowflake. Below is a picture of Snowflakes fin from our master catalog, this is an example of the type of quality that we need. Now I just need to go and practice with the fantastic equipment so that we have some great pictures for future identification.
