Bottlenose dolphins spotted off the Manx coast

Mon, 07 Nov 2011

A pod of over 100 dolphins has been spotted off the coast of the Isle of Man over the last week.

There've been numerous reports of sightings, mainly off the east coast - most recently they've been seen off Laxey and Ramsey.

It's thought the bottlenose dolphins are following the herring shoals that come to Manx waters at this time of year.

Head of the Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch Tom Felce says they've been coming in really close to the coast.[play media file below]
