More pilot whales and dolphins for all to see

Today again we spent the day with five dolphin species: common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins, Risso's dolphins and pilot whales. The past few days we have routinely been watching the same groups, which we can see by the ID photos that we take of the animals. The pilot whales that we have been seeing are always the same group, and today we saw Victor the common dolphin again, an individual with its dorsal fin flopped over that was also seen on the 1st and 3rd of this month.
