Five bottlenose dolphins
We had two sightings of bottlenose dolphins on this survey. The first was a group of two adults foraging that we were able to photograph for ID as we rounded New Quay headland. This was followed by a sighting of two adults and one juvenile foraging off shore slightly further west.
