Dolphins in the Tagus river 2020

Today February 28th we recorded the first encounter of the year with dolphins inside the Tagus river!

They were a pod around 20 common dolphins of all ages (calves, juveniles and adults) and had a uncommon melanic individual. We followed them on their way out of the river for 30 minutes. By their behaviour, we assume that they where feeding on schools of fish in the turbulent outflow of the river.
