May 2015 sighting statistics

May has been an amazing month with lots of sightings; common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, striped dolphins, Risso's dolphins, in the beginning of the month we sighted false killer whales and in the end of May we sighted pilot whales. The larger friends of the sea: blue whales, fin whales, sei whales and sperm whales. We had an encounter with the rare True's beaked whales as well. So in total 11 species of cetaceans. Apart from cetaceans we saw loggerhead turtles, ocean sunfish, a few sharks and tuna plus lots of flying fish. And the grey seal is still around. Lets go out of the water and towards the sky: Cory's shearwaters, Manx shearwaters and Macaronesian shearwaters, common terns and roseate terns, yellow-legged gulls and both great skua and pomarine skua

Blue whale - 13%
Fin whale - 71%
Sei whale - 50%
Sperm whale - 17%
