AS the sun rose over Lighthouse Beach, Port Macquarie on Tuesday, July 4 a select few who got up early enough to welcome the dawn were treated to something very special.
Andrew Ferguson captured on video a pod of whales just beyond the wave break slowing heading northward on their annual migration. They were joined by a pod of dolphins on their journey.
This year record numbers of whales have been sighted off the Mid North Coast. Up to 30,000 are expected to head north to give birth to their young before heading home in August.
