I saw 5-6 Risso's Dolphins passing the house here at Scarfskerry at 8.05pm this evening. I counted at least 5 adults and there was a calf with one of the adults. They were heading east towards John O Groats moving along just normal swimming.

I watched them with the binoculars and the telscope and they were definately Risso's Dolphins - large size, lots of scarring along body, grey look and darker dorsal fins and blunt head.

Should expect they will be around John O Groats about now - 9pm.

Anyone else get to see them?
