Our Living Seas Volunteers and members of the public were treated to continuous sightings of bottlenose dolphins throughout the day between 7am and 7pm, including some very close encounters when groups came in to forage off the harbour wall. Jacky and Snowcap were among individuals in the bay displaying behaviours such as spy-hopping and leaping, and gannets could be observed foraging above. A grey seal was also seen logging for over an hour during the final survey.
