Video shows dolphins feeding off the coast of Cornwall
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
A video taken on a wildlife cruise off the coast of Cornwall has captured nearly 200 dolphins in a feeding frenzy. The common dolphins were spotted last week by wildlife expert Ross Wheeler in Falmouth Bay during an AK Wildlife Cruise.
Mr Wheeler was leading a tour for Exeter University Students who were monitoring porpoise in the Bay but instead found 190 common dolphins feeding on a massive school of herring.
He said, "It was absolutely amazing to see common dolphins in such shallow waters. Normally they would stay deeper but they came into Falmouth Bay and up the estuary.
"Usually they are off-shore species so to see them this close in was bizarre - but it's nothing to be worried about and probably just due to tidal movements. There were groups of 20s and 30s - to see them feeding was astonishing."
Cornwall has tons of wildlife to see - either on land or out to sea - so why not take a trip by boat or along a coastal walk to spot some of the local birds and animals when you're staying at our luxury hotel in Fowey?
