Guided on two Yorkshire Coast Nature Seabird and Whale-watching trips on Friday and Saturday. The two days were quite different but equally enjoyable, with some great seabirds, including Pomarine Skuas and Manx Shearwater as well as lots of Puffins, Common Scoters and 'jumpling' Guillemots fresh from the cliffs. It was great to get a Minke Whale on the first trip of the season and a pod of seven Bottlenose Dolphins which showed incredibly around the boat for about an hour, just north of Staithes. Truly magical to see these fantastic mammals. One youngster was repeatedly playing with a strand of seaweed, tossing it out of the water and splashing his tail in delight.
