07/05/2018: Bottlenose dolphins, Atlantic grey seal

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

Due to foggy conditions similar to the previous day, surveys were started at 11:00am when visibility began to improve. During the survey bottlenose dolphins were spotted in the bay around 600m from the survey point. They were then seen for the majority of the day until 6:00pm, with adults and juveniles displaying leaping behaviours within at times 300m of the harbour wall. An Atlantic grey seal was also seen in the evening. Gannets were also around the area during the day.
