Dolphins managed to find some waves

It was overcast with choppy confused seas. Not a lot of surfing happening, but the dolphins found a few waves.

Dolphins surfing

The dolphins have been visiting Sandpatches more regularly lately. They move along the beach chasing fish, and then go out to sea a bit and come back to their starting position in a circle or oval pattern of movement. It is a matter of waiting until they are close to shore, and the right size waves arrive. Then they can’t resist and take off in the surf, sometimes finishing by leaping out the back of the wave.



Gannetts fishing

In the strong wind this morning there was a continuous stream of Gannetts going from east to west past Pt Picquet. Many of them were diving for fish.
