Dolphins

Monday 24th March

Thanks to Marcia Whitworth for this picture. Two dolphin fins shown here just off Harani; she reports she saw at least six dolphins and two calves.

It is difficult to identify the species but a good possibility is the bottle nosed dolphin which have several breeding grounds and a stable population in the Adriatic sea. For more info http://www.cetaceanalliance.org/species.htm gives a good idea of what to find in the way of cetaceans in the Mediterranean.
