New Quay was enveloped in thick mist yesterday but despite visibility being less than 1 km our Living Seas volunteers spotted the Cardigan Bay Big Three during three boat surveys undertaken on the Anna Lloyd.  A group of nine dolphins including Snowcap, one of our regulars, was seen during two trips exhibiting various behaviours including close contact, leaping and bow riding.  The evening survey recorded six Atlantic grey seals and one porpoise.
