Short beaked dolphins sighting in Stranford Lough, Ireland

'Afloat', a website in Ireland report to short beaked dolphins being sighted for the first time in Stranford Lough, Ireland.

They comment:

'According to the Belfast Telegraph, the scientists from Queen's University were on the lough to collect seaweed samples last Wednesday morning (5 November) when they were surprised by the sight of the playful marine mammals, and took out a smartphone to film their breaching, rolling and belly-flopping antics.

Little did they know at the time that they'd recorded the first ever validated sighting of the short-beaked common dolphin in Strangford Lough, and only the second ever record of the species on the Co Down coast.'
