21.02.2018 – New arrivals
A day with two trips programmed and again perfect/comfortable weather outside. Both trips we had the same sightings with Short-beaked common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) and Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). Providing us with spectacular moments, several specimens jumping together and some occasionally feeding in between while several sea-birds were trying to get their share of Snipefish (Macroramphosus scolopax). Several times we could observe them plunging into the water and resurfacing with multiple fish in their beaks. Some new arrivals were also seen amongst the sea-birds. The first Cory´s shearwater (Calonectris diomedia borealis) are now starting to arrive from the South Atlantic, after a few months out at Sea.
