It's not just the tourists that have been enjoying themselves in this recent bout of hot weather, Falmouth's fleeting population of marine mammals have also been getting in on the act.

These pictures, snapped by wildlife watchers Orca Sea Safaris, show dolphins frolicking in Falmouth Bay while seals bask in the waters off the coast.

"Over the years we have built up a large network of 'spotters'," Caroline Harvey from Orca said on Saturday, July 6.

"By 7.30 this morning we had numerous phone calls. The first trip set out with great anticipation and they were not disappointed!

"Seals, peregrine falcons, guillemots, gannets and finally some very playful common dolphins," she added.
