Beached dolphin

Beached dolphin

It is fairly common to see seals close to the beach, but occasionally larger mammals are washed onto our beaches, very often at the end of their life. The Dolphin in this photograph died but our Lifeboat crew attempted to lead it back to deeper water hence the rope attached to it. It was removed and found to have died nom natural causes and old age, and should have been in the warmer waters of the Bay of Biscay.
