Thanks to everyone who came to Loop Head yesterday despite the poor visibility at the start and took the time to ask us many questions about the diverse wildlife of west Clare. As luck would have it, nobody left without seeing their first dolphin!

Thank you all for reporting sightings and strandings to us this week. IWDG's Whale watching events were held over the weekend, and it's wonderful to see that some of you managed to capture images of these fast-swimming marine mammals when it's not always easy to predict where they will appear next!Discover more about where and how to do a watch on the IWDG website at iwdg.ie/where-and-how-to-do-a-watch/. In addition to the Free Reporting App, you can also use our online reporting form to submit your reports. #iwdgstrandings#iwdgsightings#irishwhaleanddolphingroup#shannondolphinproject#whaletrackireland#AdoptaDolphin#adoptawhale ...

As part of IWDG'S commitment to National Biodiversity Week 2022, one of our sites covered was Rathlin island, Co. Antrim, where in addition to the scheduled morning watch from the sea cliffs at west Light, we put on a 4 hour whale watch boat trip partnering with Kintra Tours on their fabulous new 14mt vessel Kintra II. This platform comfortably provided ample space for our large group of 40 IWDG members and local Whale enthusiasts and was the perfect platform for viewing a really nice group of about 10 harbour porpoises off Torr head. We hope to make these pelagic trips a more regular event for IWDG members in the North, so they don't always have to travel down to the southwest hotspots! Huge thanks to Charles Stewart and Dawn of Kintra Tours, Michael Cecil and Ciaran O' Driscoll of the Rathlin island ferry, Francis McGinn of the island shuttle bus, Liam Mc Faul and Geraldine at the RSPB ctr, and Gary Burrows for his hospitality in Portrush. Also a big thanks to Brendan Quinn, Cara Bradley and Eamonn Clarke for their support on the day, which was an important day for IWDG in Northern Ireland....the first of many we hope.
