Against an a backdrop of sunshine and cloudless skies, the idyllic scene could have been mistaken for somewhere abroad as temperatures reached a warm 23 degrees.

Posting on Twitter, Lauren said: "Soooo, this happened today. #farneislands #beautifulbabies."

Andrew Douglas, the skipper of the Serenity II boat, which takes visitors on trips around the Farnes, also captured the dolphins on video.

He tweeted: "Some lovely Bottlenose Dolphin action today, which wowed our guests.

"It felt and looked like the Mediterranean out here too. #farneislands #northumberland #serenity."

It's not the first time this summer that dolphins have been spotted and videoed off the Northumberland coast.

Last month, Andrew again recorded the animals as they jumped in and out of the sea near the Farnes.

Andrew, whose company operates tours from Seahouses, has been working at the Farnes for 15 years, and often shares images and video of the wildlife he and his guests see on his Twitter account, @thefarnes.
