Wot no cetaceans!

Following yesterdays double Minke Whale sighting expectations were high. The sea was calm with a heavy swell and it looked good for finding cetaceans
I made an early start and was joined by Dolphin Boy (Chris from Leeds) and Mark Newsome and Pink Floyd (Dave Gilmor) so lots of eyes
This is what we saw, i left them watching when i left for work at 7.00
