Bottlenose Dolphins, Filey, 8th June '21

Hardly unusual these days, but always a huge pleasure to see nonetheless - and a nice bonus to doing my first Kittiwake productivity surveys of the year for the RSPB (my tenth year monitoring the Filey colony, which this year includes checking the productivity of the small Cormorant colony, too).
A minimum of 17 dolphins came past (unfortunately hassled by a too-fast fishing boat, cropped out of the photos, naturally), revealing a few familiar faces - well, fins - including Runny Paint and acouple of others. Details to follow - I'll update this post with specific IDs when I've more info back.
