I took all these photos today the Great Northern Diver Black-tailed Godwits & Cormorant were on the Seabird Special trip I did this afternoon . The Rissos Dolphins were on this mornings Western Rocks trip Rissos  are found worldwide in temperate and tropical waters, usually in deep waters rather than close to land. As well as the tropical parts of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, Rissos are also found in the Persian Gulf, Mediterranean and Red Seas, but not the Black Sea. They range as far north as the Gulf of Alaska and southern Greenland and as far south as Tierra del Fuego.
Their preferred environment is just off the continental shelf on steep banks with water depths varying from 400–1,000 meters (1,300–3,300 ft) and water temperature at least 10 °C  and preferably 15–20 °C .
