2hr survey. Start time 10:43
Weather conditions: sea state 1/2, visibility >10km, moderate swell
10 bottlenose dolphins and 6 Atlantic grey seals
Just few minutes after the leave, two bottlenose dolphins were sighted travelling towards West direction, 180 meters away from the boat. Few minutes late, other two dolphins were spotted near the birds rock, while they were travelling. Probably, they wanted to join to another group that was foraging just in front birds rock, 100 meters away from the boat. The group was composed by four adults and one juvenile. At 11:14, two dolphins (mother and juvenile) came closer to the boat and showed bowriding behaviour. Before the return trip, one bottlenose dolphins was spotted foraging 400 meters away from the boat.
During the boat survey, six Atlantic grey seals (3 females and one male confirmed) were seen in the water.
