There is a big difference between risso and bottlenose dolphins. The pod I spotted through my scope way out across the bay had been making their way down the eastern side of the island most of yesterday. It seems these were bottlenose which are winter visitors. Yesterday's weather was so tranquil and calm that their movements was watched by delighted people from the different vantage points down the coast. They were also a feature on Manx Radio which will have alerted many to their presence. All dolphins are majestic creatures which lift our spirits when we encounter them. Go to the Manx Whale and Dophin Watch to look at their pickies. http://www.mwdw.net/newsView.aspx
