Despite the fact that many of the Cardigan Bay bottlenose dolphins spend the winter months feeding in North Wales in the seas around Anglesey and Liverpool Bay, there’s a resident gang that can still be spotted on these cold winter days.
Using our new digiscope from the Pier Watch initiative we were able to take these snaps of nine dolphins socialising and having what appeared to be a lovely time off shore from New Quay!
This pod were quite distant and because the photographs didn’t come out as well as we’d have liked, we’ve not been able to identify them. However, our monitoring officer, Daphna, was in no doubt that this was a group of females and their young calves making the most of a relatively quiet Cardigan Bay
We look forward to receiving more of your exciting sightings!
