Dolphins in the rain

8 Bottlenose Dolphins went north past Whitburn Obs this morning I even managed some decent video which will be on my youtube channel later. Magic Mark joined me and Stoney was in the house. The northerly hadn't produced anything special by the time i left and the rain was persistent. This is what we saw in order of appearance
