Dolphins join lifeboat crew during training exercise
The dolphins swam alongside the boat from Anstruther for several minutes.
A lifeboat crew enjoyed some unexpected company this week after a pod of dolphins joined them during a training exercise.
The dolphins swam alongside the boat from Anstruther for several minutes in the choppy waters off the Fife coast.
A volunteer from the crew managed to capture the moment on a video which shows the dolphins jumping from the water around the craft.
Dolphins are naturally social creatures, often interacting with humans.
The cetaceans are regularly spotted around the Firth of Forth.
