Dolphins seen in the river

Several short beaked dolphins have been photographed swimming along the River Great Ouse.

They are thought to have followed a school of fish in from the Wash. They are also known for swimming along with boats and particularly for riding the wave formed at a boat’s bow.

Short-beaked common dolphins are normally found in warm tropical waters, they are known to live in areas of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Southeast Indian Ocean.

Dolphins were once very common in our river, going back to the medieval period. We were also renowned for having quantities of sturgeon in the river.
