Hi Gee - this looks like they could be the three Sooty's at Candlagan estuary. Or they may well be from elsewhere. But they are certainly not from the open ocean that the location marker is indicating. Were the location coordinates taken directly from your camera's metadata? You might need to look into this if correct locations are to be recorded.
