Seven Atlantic grey seals

Roughly five minutes into the survey, an Atlantic grey seal pup was spotted hauled out on a beach. An hour later, a further six Atlantic grey seals were observed, consisting of one adult female in the water, a swimming male adult, two hauled out adult females and two hauled out pups. Plenty of gannet activity was also observed, with a large number of gannets circling the water and occasionally diving in.
