A friendly pod of dolphins has been spotted in the Solent today (Saturday).
It isn’t unusual to see dolphins around the coast of the Isle of Wight but they are normally sighted off Sandown and Ventnor, not Cowes and Ryde.
Island Echo reader Brandon captured the mammals just off Cowes shortly before 09:00 this morning, with Stuart then spotting the pod whilst mid-Solent this lunchtime. It’s thought the dolphins have been chasing shoals of mackerel.
It is estimated that the pod contains at least 10 dolphins.
