News – continued cetacean activity in Tralee Bay

First a stranding over differing days, and now a different species. Succeeding last week’s events in Tralee Bay where an unusual mass dolphin stranding occurred (read updates here) a group of long finned Pilot whales have stranded themselves in the same bay, and have successfully been refloated. Pilot whales are a pelagic species, rarely seen in coastal waters; more commonly seen stranded on our beaches due to their  propensity for stranding.
