Dolphins playing off Almorness
Dolphins playing off Almorness
Dolphins are not common in the Solway. I've sailed it all my life and this is the only time I've seen a school of dolphins together. There must have been at least a dozen and they were leaping around the boat for about 15 minutes. The boat was just off White Port at the tip of Almorness and the view is east, towards Rockcliffe.
