5 bottlenose dolphins and 1 atlantic grey seal
A lone Atlantic Grey Seal was the first sighting for this boat survey, around twenty minutes into the trip. It was hauled out and appeared to be a female. After around an hour, a group of two bottlenose dolphins were seen foraging – the group included one adult and one calf. Towards the end of the survey, a second group of bottle nose dolphins were seen including 3 adults. They were leaping and foraging.
