Day of dolphins

Seeing reports of large numbers of basking sharks seen off Lands End, we thought we'd go and see if we could spot any. We went from Falmouth, which turned out to be not quite far enough West and North for the sharks - we went almost to the Lizard, but no signs of any sharks there.

However, what we did see :
Several of these (grey seals):

Absolutely loads of these (common dolphins), playing all round the boat!

Dolphins are really hard to photograph - they are so quick and by the time you press the button, they've gone under again - and the boat moving up and down doesn't help either. The rapid fire mode proved to be the best approach - you do end up with a lot of photos of sea, but also some of dolphins.
