Survey Observations

Weather conditions: sea state 2, visibility >10km, light swell

A sunny day allowed for clear sightings on a dolphin survey boat trip yesterday. Two groups of three dolphins were spotted (one of which contained a calf) near Ynys Lochtyn. The two groups were foraging ahead then approached the boat for a moment before continuing East. An adult male seal was also spotted hauled out.
