Filming with AK Wildlife for BBC One Show

MARINElife’s Rick Morris was invited down to Cornwall to give his support to Captain Keith Leeves of AK Wildlife Cruises for the BBC’s One Show back in July.

This was to showcase Keith’s dedicated work in conservation both past and present but focusing now on the huge diversity of marine wildlife to be found in Falmouth Bay.

The weather for the trip out into the Bay was good and filming began with an interview with Keith by the berth of his boat ‘Free Spirit’.

We had only just got out of the Carrick Roads and approaching the ‘Old Wall’ reef we spotted some Harbour Porpoise. Not too long after this encounter gannets were feeding with Common Dolphin and we enjoyed multiple sightings of more Common Dolphin (+400) including lots of calves and juveniles most of which were in association with seabirds feeding on large shoals of baitfish.

Seabirds observed: Manx Shearwater (in their 1000’s throughout the day). Guillemot (plus 1 Bridled), Fulmar, Gannet, Mediterranean Gull, Herring and Great Black-back Gull.

We also came across large numbers of Compass Jellyfish and a Grey Seal hauled out.

Our thanks to Captain Keith for his support of MARINElife and to the BBC One Show filming crew for accommodating us.
