Hi there 

One of our contacts, local Cork based whale watch operator, Colin Barnes
contacted Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG)yesterday with a sighting in
offshore West Cork waters of a group of Common dolphins on Sun 14th March,
one of the group had what appeared to be a blue tag at the base of the
dorsal fin. Out of this tag was appeared to be a small aerial.

Is there anyone within your organisation using such satellite/radio tags on
Common dolphins in the NE Atlantic, or further afield who might be
interested in this?  If so, please contact IWDG at details below
