Shewww....big seas greeted us this morning. Large swells, chilly air and although we had hoped for a beautiful dolphin diving day- we were disappointed not to find any of our finned friends within our monitoring area. Visibility is still wonderful and the free-dving session over Creche found a multitude of bait fish and a somewhat curious potato bass. Sadly we scrapped launching for the rest of the day. Lets hope the windguru is right with tomorrows forecast. Although we can expect little wind, the swell is still expecting to run at 3m.
And every now and then we catch the boys pokipodding - a casual termed coined by the dolphin encountours team to describe what is non-reproductive sexual behaviour. Here Skellitor, Sicle, Igor, Noodle and one other male can be seen shoving and poking around. In the beginning Skellitor can be seen pinning Igor to the sand until another male arrives.
