’40 Dolphins’ Spotted Swimming In Bridlington Bay

Whilst we all stay self-isolated in lockdown the sea life is having the time of its life. First along the Scarborough coast and now Bridlington, the sea life on the Yorkshire coast is flourishing during the lockdown. Up to 40 dolphins were spotted having a morning swim in Bridlington Bay.

On the Driffield & Wolds Weekly Facebook page. A local to the seaside town, resident Millie Mason, said, “I actually can’t believe what I have just seen, about 40 dolphins swimming right next to me – such an amazing view”

A local skipper captured some footage of the amazing creatures flying through the water and playing together in the waters of Bridlington Bay yesterday.

Speaking to Driffield & Wolds Weekly James Bycroft said, “We were out in the bay putting lobster pots in at around 11 am… It was amazing when the dolphins surrounded the boat, they were really friendly and eventually headed towards Flamborough.

“I’ve seen dolphins in the bay before but never as many as that.”

Bottlenose dolphins have been spotted swimming in the Scarborough sea as the popular seaside resort sees a decline in fishermen and tourists in the area.

Spotted by Scarborough Porpoise, a Facebook page that spot marine life in North Yorkshire, the event saw around 25 of the dolphins passing northwards “at speed”.
