Our Living Seas volunteers carried out one boat survey yesterday with a number of bottlenose dolphin and Atlantic Grey Seal sightings. A group were seen at the start of the survey foraging close to the fish factory, with around 5 gannets circling overhead. Whilst later on in the survey a female Atlantic Grey Seal was observed scanning in the water, with its pup hauled out.
