Scottish Dolphins Take Lockdown Break in Yorkshire

The Yorkshire Coasts seems to be the go-to staycation destination for the animals.

A group of tourists from Scotland have started their annual vacation on the Yorkshire Coast despite lockdown.

The family of Dolphins are thought to come from north of the border and over the last few years have taken to turning up off our shores at the same time each year.

Stuart Baines runs the Scarborough Porpoise Facebook page, he says the pod of dolphins spent some time along the coast last week.

Increasing numbers of the marine mammals are being spotted along the coastline each year with Yorkshire seemingly becoming the go-to staycation destination for the animals.

Stuart Baines says the increase in numbers started quite recently
