Last Biscay trip for the time being...

This time last week I was on the Pride of Bilbao for my last trip in Biscay with the Company of Whales. Although the sea birds sightings were very quiet except for a few Sabine's Gulls, and 1 Sooty Shearwater, the cetaceans sightings on the other hand were excellent as the group recorded 9 species of Cetacean!
The highlights of the trip for me was the sighting of a male Cuvier's Beaked Whale just 30 metres off the ship, large number of Pilot Whales, at least four Sperm Whales and hundreds of Tuna seen in the southern bay.
I would like to thank Mike Weedon and Brian Stone for being great company on the trip and also the guests of Company of Whales for such an enjoyable trip!
