Risso's Dolphin

The Risso's Dolphin showed well from the Torpoint ferry quay from 14.20 to 14.50 but generally distantly. Initially it was around the boats at entrance to St Johns Lake before it moved upstream passing just a few meters in front of the Torpoint slipway. I eventually lost it north of the barges, well north of the dockyard. It doesn't seem to be a fan of boats that are moving and becomes elusive when a boat passes.

Morte Point

Took this photo from a distance yesterday on northern side of the Point and thought I'd enlarge it to see what it might be before wiping it. Could it be a Basking Shark?

A Risso’s Dolphin beside Devonport Dockyard today, intially showing very well at close range from the Torpoint Ferry. Still around this evening but much more distant having moved further up river from the ferry (still beside the Dockyard).
