dolphin in mudeford

Hello everybody,

Last night weíre out just off Christchurch ledge and a dolphin came along to say hello. It hung around for about and hour or so then disappeared.

Absolutely amazing animal, Iíve been boating for years in Mudeford and never seen one before, I think it is very unusual for them to be there. Unfortunately I didnít have my camera with me

We see them quite often between Black Sock Sands, Morfa Bychen and Abersoch. Got some video of them jumpin out the water, I'll try and convert it to put it on here.
