4hr survey. Start time 0900
Weather conditions: Sea state 2/3, Visibility >10km, Light swell
24 bottlenose dolphins and one harbour porpoise

Early in the survey five bottlenose dolphins were seen off New Quay headland. This group included one calf and were foraging and leaping, and were soon joined by five more adults.  Further down the coast and a couple of kilometers offshore a single harbour porpoise was briefly spotted. Later in the survey in the bay off Aberporth a large number of dolphins were seen, with 14 adults, two calves and a juvenile foraging, leaping, feeding and socialising around the bay. On the return to New Quay bay another dolphin was seen from a distance.
