Pod



Every so often there are whales or dolphins in the harbour. I haven't been lucky enough to spot any until today! This is a big pod of dolphins in Evans Bay - probably Dusky Dolphins. I'd guess they and the gulls circling to the right are munching on a school of kahawai.

That's a lot of dolphins! I don't think I've ever seen that many at once.

Neither had I, before this. A report of a previous sighting of probably the same group put the number at about 200. Considering that in the original photograph I counted 25 at the surface and that the disturbed water extended further than the visible dolphins, that number doesn't seem altogether improbable.
