The first sighting of Risso’s dolphin for 2013 was reported off Caithness this weekend. Kevin Davidson spotted them coming into Thurso Bay from Holborn head late on Sunday evening and forwarded details of the the sighting to Regional Coordinator, Colin Bird.
Colin commented: “This is the latest “first annual sighting” of Risso’s dolphins since my records began in 2005. With a bit of luck, we can expect more sightings of this species in the coming weeks. If you do encounter Risso’s dolphins or any other cetacean species, don’t forget to let me know!”
Colin is organising the Orca watch from 18th to 25th May. For more information, contact Colin via email ColinB51@aol.com
