At the start of the survey 2 bottlenose dolphins were seen travelling east far offshore whilst one remained foraging at the cardinal buoy. One was then seen closer to the wall foraging, before two others began leaping in-between foraging in front of the harbour wall inline with the fish factory. These two animals then began travelling at the surface west. The dolphins were only seen once more during the survey foraging and leaping on the horizon.
