These bottlenosed dolphins were spotted and photographed by Olle Åkesson, Sussex Wildlife Trust Marine Officer, off the coast of Beachy Head last Friday (August 2).

Olle was carrying out a sea search survey in the recommended Marine Conservation Zone at the east of the landmark cliff. He said, “It was a pleasant surprise. They are semi-unusual, especially in the east. We tend to see more down in Devon and Cornwall.”

There were four dolphins which stayed with the wake of the boat for a couple of minutes.
