Dead dolphin washed up on the beach


Washed up on the beach at Newlyn Green and at first sight for many the result of the animal having been caught up in fishing net around its tail...



however, closer inspection reveals that the small size of the mesh does not justify this as the cause of its demise...




the tag denotes that it will be logged and studied.
