Ducked off...........

12 Bottlenose Dolphins went north at Whitburn Obs early morning. It was a very quiet sea watch and for the first time i can remember i didnt see any wildfowl, you could say i was Ducked off
The dolphins saved the day with what has become the regular pod going north. I saw at least 12 but suspect it was 20 plus
This is what i saw in order of appearance
