Marine charity Sea Watch Foundation says sightings of bottlenose dolphins in Ceredigion will increase 'week on week', as they return to the shelter of the area to protect their young.
Cardigan Bay is famous for hosting one of Europe's largest semi-resident populations of bottlenose dolphins, one of the area's most important economic assets.
This winter also saw a more unusual visitor, in the shape of the short-beaked common dolphin. This type of species is usually seen in deeper waters such as in nearby Pembrokeshire.
Since it was first recorded, the charity has continued to receive reports from other local observers.
What will the common dolphin do when the bottlenose dolphins return, people ask me. The truth is we can't be sure! We would love to see this elegant and unusual New Quay resident spend its life in the bay, but there are high expectations that its larger cousins will not tolerate its presence. We'll have to wait and see.

A nine-year-old girl who was trapped between giant rocks while playing hide-and-seek on the beach at Aberaeron has been reunited with the RNLI lifeboat volunteers who rescued her.
Eira was trapped on Thursday evening, still wearing her school uniform, and stuck between rocks.
She was dramatically rescued, with the tide beginning to rise.
It was the first call-out for 17-year-old Tom Evans, a volunteer with New Quay inshore RNLI lifeboat, who crawled inside the rock and helped release her, by cutting her out of her wellington boots.

As the fine weather continues RNLI lifeguards are returning to some of Wales' most popular beaches in Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion.
They will be on duty, in partnership with Pembrokeshire County Council, at Poppit Sands, Newport, Broad Haven, Newgale south, Saundersfoot, Tenby north, Tenby Castle and Freshwater west beach for the summer season.
Further north in Ceredigion, the charity's lifeguards will be ready at their posts at Aberporth, Tresaith and Aberystwyth North as they continue to work alongside Ceredigion County Council in the seasonal service.
Remedial work to repair Aberystwyth promenade should be completed by Easter, Ceredigion Council says.
A council spokesperson said: "Work has been going on apace to ensure that any necessary work to Aberystwyth promenade and Ceredigion's beaches will be completed by Easter.
"Beaches are being reprofiled where necessary and damaged equipment replaced with over £500,000 being spent on the recovery works to date."
Firefighters are tackling a fire at a house in Llandysul, Ceredigion.
Mid and West Fire and Rescue Service were called to the property in Maes y Meillion at around 9.00am this morning.
Crews from Llandysul and Newquay are attending the fire.
The cause is not yet known, and there are not thought to be any injuries.
The west coast of Wales took quite a pounding in the recent storms - and they have exposed a large expanse of a prehistoric forest on the beach in the village of Borth.
The sight has brought a surge in visitors - keen to get a look and feel of the remains of the 6,000-year-old trees before they get covered up again.

The Bath Rock Shelter on Aberystwyth Promenade will be rebuilt using as much of the original timber as possible says Ceredigion Council.
A meeting on Monday between the council and Wales' historical monuments body CADW decided the work would use as much of the original timber as possible.
The work will start when the sea wall has been strengthened and the weather improves which could be before the end of May.
A cliff-top bungalow in New Quay, Ceredigion, where Dylan Thomas and his wife Caitlin lived is up for sale.
The couple lived at the home named 'Majoda' between September 1944 and July 1945. It's said to be a place which inspired much of his best known poems and writing including ‘Quite Early One Morning.’
The house, depicted by a mock-up in the field next-door, was at the centre of the Hollywood film 'The Edge of Love' starring Keira Knightly, Sienna Miller and Matthew Rhys.
The film depicts Dylan Thomas and his wife in a complex three-way relationship with a neighbour, Vera Killick. Unfortunately for the poet, Vera’s husband was a Commando officer. Home on leave, he took against Dylan and one night fired a few shots at Majoda.
Today, Majoda is said to be much more peaceful.
The rent Dylan and his wife paid back then was £1 per week but the property had no electricity or running water. Today it has a price tag of around £450,000 and has been thoroughly modernised.
Tributes have been paid to an 18-year-old girl killed yesterday in a crash on the A487 between Llanrhystud and Llanon.
Gwenno Fflur Tudor, from Llanilar in Ceredigion, was a student at Llysfasi Agricultural College.
Her family said: "Gwenno was a lively, bubbly girl who always had a smile on her face.
"She enjoyed taking part in sports and played football for Penrhyncoch and hockey for Tregaron. She also enjoyed taking part in Young Farmers activities. She loved to spend time outdoors, and spent a lot of her time outdoors on the farm.
"Gwenno will be very deeply missed by family and friends."
Dyfed Powys Police family liaison officer Helen Yelland said: “This is a tragic incident that has had a heartbreaking impact on Gwenno’s family and a very close-knit community, who have come together in their grief following the tragedy.”
