A POD of Dolphins has been spotted off the Dorset coast this morning.

Around 15 bottle-nosed dolphins were seen just off the bill by Martin cade from the Portland Bird Observatory and posted on his Twitter.

He said: "It's always a real joy spotting dolphins whilst we're looking for birds.

"It was about 9.30 this morning when I first spotted them and saw them mulling around for about an hour.

"There were lots of dog walkers there taking photos and watching them - it really is a joy."

Mr Cade said that the best place to see pods of dolphins is at the tip of the bill, where they appear roughly 15 times a year.
