Whales, dolphins and porpoises can be found off the Dorset coast all year round, but tend to peak in April/May and again in October/November. If you are out walking or fishing on Chesil Beach and see any of these animals then please report what you see. You can do this at the Chesil Beach Centre or you can report directly to the Dorset sightings coordinators at Durlston Country Park. Click here for the sighting form and more information.
