The Mammal Tour keeps on giving

When you’ve seen one of the rarest mammals on the British list it gets difficult to better. Today however … we came close.

Having watched the sea for a while to the west of John O’Groats we decided to make our way further east. I’m always a bit wary of having one eye off the road but as we were driving a splash in the bright blue sea caught my attention. As we pulled up and I took the scopes from the boot of the car I saw the splash for sure once more. As I focused in on the animals  it was overwhelmingly obvious what they were. Risso’s Dolphins. The white scarred bodies, the shape of the head and dorsal fin were very distinctive. Five of them. One possibly a young animal.
