2 Bottlenose Dolphins

At the beginning of this survey two bottlenose dolphins were milling around at the surface near the cardinal buoy. After approximately half an hour they split and one of them started to do long dives, suspected to be foraging at depth. Halfway throughout this survey they were seen travelling independently in a westwards direction before they disappeared from view north of the wall.
