Over the past few weeks during our sightings, our bottlenose dolphins have demonstrated some of their stranger feeding habits! We have been fortunate to have perfect weather conditions for following the dolphins in their daily routine and completing comprehensive behaviour surveys – and this has allowed us to observe an adult leaping clear of the water to slap it’s prey of a large squid on the surface.
Other encounters have included stunning a electric blue striped fish on the surface, but not eating it and a chase of over 500m after a determined flying fish. The fish won this time round and out-swam the dolphin!
We will keep you updated of any other new discoveries!
