Great Last Day of 2010

We surveyed the estuary and the coastal ocean off Shackleford Banks today for Photo ID and what a last trip of the year. We recorded a total of 147 dolphins (that’s alot).This included 5 calves; 2 ‘young of the year’ and most exciting was a neonate. He/she was dark with very clear folds and was very bouncy. Two of the young calves had visible folds also. The water was clear and we could actually see the neonate nursing. Wow!! We are not yet sure if we have a video of that, but I will definitely post some pictures next week.
Happy New Year.
