Two dolphins have been recorded having a conversation for the first time after scientists developed an underwater microphone which could distinguish the animals’ different “voices”.

Researchers have known for decades that the mammals had an advanced form of communication, using distinctive clicks and whistles to show they are excited, happy, stressed or separated  from the group.

But scientists have now shown that dolphins alter the volume and frequency of pulsed clicks to form individual “words” which they string together into sentences in much the same way that humans speak.

Researchers at the Karadag Nature Reserve, in Feodosia, Russia, recorded two Black Sea bottlenose dolphins, called Yasha and Yana, talking to each other in a pool. They found that each dolphin would listen to a sentence of pulses without interruption, before replying.

Lead researcher Dr Vyacheslav Ryabov, said: “Essentially, this exchange resembles a conversation between two people.

A seal pup was thrown clear of the sea in the recent storms in Cornwall/

Sue Sayer from Cornwall Seal Group said: “Many of the autumn pups have been separated from their mothers by the huge seas and of those that have weaned, many that are exploring the seas and learning to feed are suffering injuries such as broken jaws from being thrown against the rocks.“The high tides and stormy conditions have meant that many of the beaches the seals use to rest and recoup are covered with water, and there have been reports from around the county of young seals being washed into ridiculous places, up cliffs, into harbours and even into peoples gardens.”

The British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team responds to live strandings of marine animals and have been exceptionally busy this winter.David Jarvis, director and Cornwall area co-ordinator of BDMLR said: “Since December we have had over 100 rescue call-outs, the vast majority of these have been to seal pups. In a typical year we would expect approximately 150 call outs in a whole year.”Storms are preventing seals from getting much-needed rest on the shore and animals are getting tangled in the debris being washed ashore. Members of the public are asked to report any strandings on the 24-hour number 0345 2012626.
