Survey Observations

Weather conditions: sunny, sea state 1, wind direction S/SE

Despite the almost ideal survey conditions, it was a quiet day in the bay. However our Living Seas volunteers spotted harbour porpoises during the two afternoon surveys, at 13:30 and 15:00. Initially one surfaced close to the harbour wall before moving off towards New Quay head. Later a porpoise was seen feeding further out off the headland.
