A wise man once told me that, 'assumption is the mother of all cock ups', yesterday a number of people assumed that the Dolphin washed up on Bournemouth beach was the same one rescued in Swanage on Sunday. It now seems that this was probably not the case. Ian sent me this message yesterday evening:

"When I spoke with my boss last night who also attended the incident at Bournemouth, having seen our photo's he felt it was a different dolphin as the one they had, had a "chunk" out of the fin and was also quite heavily diseased."

I'll sing myself to sleep
A song from the darkest hour
Secrets I can't keep
Inside of the day
Swing from high to deep
Extremes of sweet and sour
Hope that God exists
I hope I pray

Drawn by the undertow
My life is out of control
I believe this wave will bear my weight
So let it flow

Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down, down, down, down, down
In sympathy

(James - Sit down)

I did catch it thanks Joan, even spotted a bit of my own video footage from a shout to a motor cruiser on fire.

Best wishes

Great video, I missed the original broadcast so was pleased to catch it online.

Hi John,

My bald spot featured well in the top down shot of me and Neil in the pool. Must be getting old. Next time - please send sensible crew to come and play in our pool - not the likes of Deasey, Scrat, Tom and Matt!

Funnily enough Paul, I didn't recognise you 'till I saw the bald spot!

By the way, Deasy came swimming on Tuesday night..........proudly wearing Neil Olivers trunks!!
