Off Tarifa, Cadiz Province and travelling home.

A second trip out for the Orca's.

Long-finned Pilot Whale (Globicephala melas).
As we had not seen the Orca's yesterday we got 30% off todays trip out but this time there were less of us so we were on a much smaller boat which made it a bit more choppy.

Again there was no sign of the Orca's but on this trip we did see more Common Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) as well as several Atlantic White-sided Dolphins (Lagenorhynchus acutus) and a good number of Long-finned Pilot Whales (Globicephala melas) all of which gave us good views but as the boat was smaller getting in to get photographs was a lot harder.

During the cruise we had several more Cory's Shearwater (Pardela Cenicienta / Calonectris diomedea), a single Great Skua (Págalo Grande / Stercorarius skua) and many migrating Barn Swallows (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica).

We arrived back at the port in Tarifa and had some Lunch before heading back towards home but on the way we called in at a spot where we photographed a couple of White Storks (Ciguena Blanca / Ciconia ciconia).
