Azores residents

Today was a day of our resident species. In the Azores there are 4 cetacean species living around the islands year-round, although it is not always possible to see them all because they have a very large home. But today we saw them all, starting with Risso's dolphins, continuing with sperm whales and ending with bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins. It's been another great day in the company of cetaceans in the Azores.
