Dolphins were seen for the first 45 minutes of this survey, and were moving around the survey area quite a bit. Three were seen initially, in front of the harbour wall towards the fish factory, two of whom appeared to be foraging and one was travelling towards the East. These were then joined by two more, and they appeared to be mostly foraging before the harbour wall. Three of these, including a calf moved around to the end of the harbour wall, and two further out, where they were all foraging for food.
