Bottlenose dolphins give rare display in Menai Strait

Three bottlenose dolphins have been giving spectators a rare display in the Menai Strait.

Around 150 people gathered on St George’s Pier in Menai Bridge to watch the dolphins, who were first spotted on Thursday morning.

Common dolphins have been seen in the strait before, but sightings of bottlenose dolphins this close to land are very unusual, according to Jo Quinney from boat tour company RibRide.

She believes they are seeking shelter from the bad weather that has been affecting parts of Wales.

The dolphins have been very playful. We have been taking great care around these amazing creatures.


Lucky witnesses have been sharing their excitement on social media.
