A special thanks to Carl Miln (Stena Line) for supporting the event by providing a bus and driver to ferry people from the Ocean Lab and back afterwards.
The other first was quite special too. If I'm correct, it is the first time we've recorded a porpoise at the breakwater that we know from our porpoise watches at Strumble Hd. The notches out of the fin are very familiar and I think this was one of the porpoises featured by Chantelle at the recent synposium. A female I think as it was in the company of a calf although the calf is well grown. I'll leave Cliff and the others to contemplate the importance of this sighting but it is a significant first I think.
