Rare humpback sighting confirmed for Rathlin Island.
22 July 2010

Atlantic white-sided dolphins now added to the Rathlin mix
IWDG have just validated sighting no. 15601 which we've upgraded to Atlantic White-sided dolphin. This latest Rathlin area sighting of 10-12 dolphins was made yesterday 21/07/10 c1 mile north of Ballycastle Harbour on route to Rathlin on the Rathlin Express Ferry. Species ID was confirmed by image taken by Michael Cecil.


As with the humpback whale sighting, this is another 1st for N. Ireland as it is the 1st confirmed sighting of Atlantic White-sided dolphins since records began. That said we can't escape the fact that there are 8 validated stranding records of AWSD in N. Ireland.
