Dolphins in Scotland

Warm-water dolphins spotted off Scotland -- UPI

EDINBURGH, Scotland, July 13 (UPI) -- Common dolphins have been sighted in unprecedented numbers this summer in the cold waters off Scotland.

Pods as large as 300 have appeared in the Moray Firth near Aberdeen, The Scotsman reported.

The common dolphin is a warm water animal, only rarely seen in the North Sea and more usually found in the Mediterranean. Scientists say rising temperatures have allowed them to move north.
More unprecedented happenings...
