IWDG featured on a new RTE interactive video on humpback whales

13th Feb 2015

Report update 13/02/15...... IWDG has just received this morning another late season humpback whale record from Monday 9th Feb. of a pair of humpback whales off the Ling Rocks, to the southeast of the Old Head of Kinsale, Co. Cork.  Clearly another cohort of humpbacks that given the lateness in the season are unlikely to embark on a migration to low latitude winter breeding grounds in West Africa. As always IWDG extend a huge thanks to all recorders for reporting whale and dolphin sighting records online. Based on sightings in recent weeks, it seems that the waters along the Cork, Waterford and extending into the Wexford coast still have plenty of common dolphins activity and large whales. Enjoy!

The IWDG is  featured on a new RTE interactive video.  The video links a number of features surrounding the mysteries of the humpback whale and their ccurrence in Irish waters. This new feature enables the listener to visit different links depending on how deeply you want to delve into the story. The idea is a trial by independant film maker, Philip Bromwell, who has worked closely with the IWDG in recent years, covering a range of cetacean stories from Irish waters.
