The pilot whales rested motionless at times and then dived down for a period of time. Although they werent feeding, their usual diet includes cephalopods, including squid. There was also a smaller group that was observed off St Martins Point, approx 6 pilot whales with some . They are normally seen in July/August/September possibly on migration.
