Last summer three adults and a young one spent 30 min playing around us, jumping out of the water but always keeping the baby sandwiched between two of the adults. That was on the west side of Bute. Havent seen any this year just porpoises.

We were drinh the tug about 10 Nm off Aberdeen 4 days ago and a pod made a Beeline for us and messed about for about 15 minutes. It was cool and groovy and maore than made up for being in Scotland

I also was driving a survey boat in early January in Aberdeen HArbour (and it's approaches) and there was a large Pod hanging around outside there. They played with us for several days and there was loads of em at least 6. It's very dificult to drive a straight line when your busy being entranced by Dolphins!

Likewise my photgraphic skills didn;t shine!
