Dolphins in the Swan River

Just a quick blog with no real photos today.

I rode my bike into work today and had a lovely view of a mother dolphin with calf as I crossed over the Windan Bridge – very close to the new Perth stadium.  No photos unfortunately.

The Swan River is host to a pod of approx 25 Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins.  More information can be found at Dolphin Watch and they encourage people to become dolphin watchers and use an App to record sightings.

There were reports of 2 calves born in March – so perhaps the one I saw this morning was one of them.

Wonderful that we have mammals in our river so close to the CBD.
