Group of humpback whales caught socialising with dolphins in Ireland

Spectacular drone footage has captured a group of humpback whales socialising off west Cork with dolphins.

The footage was filmed by the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group on a research trip out of Reen Pier on board the Holly Jo vessel last month.

The IWDG is gathering data for a new project, Whale Track Ireland, which aims to determine what large baleen whales are doing in Irish waters, where they are coming from and where they are going to.
