Three dolphins have been making waves in the River Foyle.

They were spotted close to the Peace Bridge on Monday morning.

Allan Bogle, who took photographs and video of the dolphins, thought they may have been of the bottlenose variety.

The visit of the dolphins is regarded as quite unusual.

One keen observer said: “It’s pretty rare for a dolphin to come this far out of Lough Foyle, especially venturing into freshwater. To see three is very unusual.

“There is a good chance they are just hungry and following a shoal of fish.”
