Our Living Seas volunteers conducted 12 hours of surveys from the harbour wall. Despite foggy weather three bottlenose dolphins, including a calf, were observed leaping close to the harbour wall. Later in the day two harbour porpoise were spotted foraging close to New Quay headland. In the last survey five dolphins were seen foraging throughout the bay.
