The Barnacles dolphin pod wowed volunteer feeders earlier in the year, bringing an increasing amount of “gifts” while the centre was closed due to coronavirus.

That tradition has continued well beyond Barnacles’ reopening, and alpha male Mystique took it to a new level this week.

“So far he has brought in 13 items, from Barnacle covered rocks to a range of different bottles and he couldn’t look more proud of himself if he tried,” Barnacles wrote on Facebook yesterday morning.

That number was soon updated to 21, with even an old corona bottle among Mystique’s finds.
