White beaked dolphins off the Isle of Wight

A good friend who lives on the Isle Of Wight just sent me this link. These White beaked dolphins ( Lagenorhynchus albirostris ) were filmed recently off the south coast off the island. I have only seen them once before, at the other end of the British Isles, close inshore by the island of Handa, off the Scottish northwest coast. Their markings are really distinctive and they are also sometimes reported off Aberdeen and further out. Great spot ?
