30th July 2014 And some more of the Bottlenose Dolphins from a few days back - pity I didn't get the jump dead centre, but there you go! We may not always see dolphins on the coast, but we do know the best place to look. If you want to join us on one of our trips, see www.angusbirdtours.com

AK Wildlife Cruises had a fun and enjoyable time watching bottlenose dolphins off the coast of south Cornwall. A large group of 12 dolphins including a calf were traveling and feeding as we sailed along with them. Filmed by Capt. Keith on Free Spirit on our 3rd day of the National Whale and Dolphin Watch week run by The Sea Watch Foundation.

Summary Scientists studying bottlenose dolphins that use sponges as tools to protect their sensitive beaks has shown that social behavior can shape the genetic makeup of an animal population in the wild. The study has been carried out on dolphins in Shark Bay in Western Australia. With many of these bottlenose dolphins, the mammals put conical marine sponges on their rostrums (beaks) when they forage on the sea floor.
