Atlantic Canary, San Marcos, Tenerife

 Atlantic Canary is so common around here.

Risso's Dolphins, San Marcos, Tenerife

Settled on the north coast of Tenerife for a month. Seabirds are virtually non existent (a Kittiwake passing yesterday was a surprise and the only thing other than Yellow-legged Gull so far). However there have been plenty of dolphins. A distant pod of what may have been Striped Dolphin a few days ago, a nice close pod of Risso's Dolphins on Friday and, presumably the same ones, today. Also a distant party of what looked like Bottle-nosed today.

The video is not great quality I'm afraid but you get the idea.
