Risso's Dolphins

Despite a very wet trip yesterday we had plenty of sightings including 4 Risso's Dolphin which is a first for me despite having been on boats around the Hebrides for the last 4 seasons. This is a large Dolphin species and whilst they can be very playful yesterday they were just milling around, slowly surfacing. A very nice sight. We also saw lots of Basking Sharks, Harbour Porpoise and Seals, along with a very soggy juvenile Sea Eagle that by the time we returned had sensibly retreated to the relative shelter of the trees.

Sunday's trip again had fantastic sightings with Minke Whale, Basking Sharks and a Sunfish all being seen along with the smaller species.
