Risso’s dolphins!

By Lyndon Lomax

I was on a boat trip in the Grassholm area when this strange (it was to us then) large ‘creature’ passed us. I managed this photo of it using ‘the good old’ Agfa slides just before ‘I went digital’. It and the rest of the pod were also seen and photographed from other boats. It turned out we were looking at Risso’s dolphins. They had been unheard of here until this occasion. More recently there have been many sightings each year.
