One Atlantic grey seal was spotted in the water North of the harbour wall around 45 minutes into the survey. Three bottlenose dolphins, including one calf, were then sighted in front of the wall travelling North-West whilst taking long dives and surfacing irregularly, potentially searching for prey whilst on the move. Two other bottlenose dolphins were later seen milling around and taking long dives near the cardinal marker, towards the end of the survey.
