7 Bottlenose Dolphins including two juveniles
Early in survey 4 dolphins including one juvenile were observed 250 m northwest of the harbour wall travelling towards the harbour which they entered. After a brief stay foraging the dolphins departed travelling in a northerly direction foraging on the move. Approximately 30 mins later two dolphins including one juvenile were seen 250 m northwest of the harbour wall and these also travelled into the harbour where they briefly foraged before departing to the north. During the final 15 minutes of the survey 3 dolphins including one juvenile again travelled into the harbour. The mother and juvenile were positively identified as Connie and Finn and were believed to be the same animals as seen in the previous observation. At the end of the survey the dolphins were still in the vicinity of the harbour wall foraging with fast circling, tail slaps and lunges.
