03/05/2018: Bottlenose dolphins, Atlantic grey seals

Weather conditions: Sunny/Fair, Sea state 1-2, Wind direction SE-SW

In the morning, bottlenose dolphins were seen at irregular intervals in the bay – with one seen close early on before it headed off towards the headland. Seen foraging, the dolphins were around for a few hours. Also spotted yesterday were seals, with one female individual staying within view of our volunteers for the majority of the afternoon. Gannets were also seen flying and catching prey quite close to the survey point.
