An early morning text alerting us of a pod of 'dolphins' in Bressay Sound could not have been timed better! Jon was on his way to the ferry terminal to pick up Kim & Ji who were starting a two-day trip with us, so a quick diversion and an instant result - they weren't dolphins - they were a magnificent pod of 20+ Long-finned Pilot Whales! For the next couple of hours we enjoyed incredible views of these animals from the main pier in Lerwick as they spy-hopped, fluked and lob-tailed. The pod appeared to be a nursery group comprising mainly females and younger animals, and there were at least two tiny calves. Awesome!
