Isle of Man residents were in for a treat at the weekend when more than 150 bottlenose dolphins were seen off Douglas Head in one afternoon.

Spotted close to the shore, the pod of juveniles appeared to jump and perform acrobatics, showcasing their inquisitive and playful nature.

Craig Whalley captured great footage of the dolphins swimming alongside his boat as featured on the BBC here.

In December it was reported that the first resident pod of bottlenose dolphins had been found living year-round off the south-west coast of England.

Experts used a combination of photos and sightings in their thousands to identify a group of 28 individuals living year-round off the coasts of Cornwall, Devon and Dorset.
