Despite the dull weather conditions of the day, our Living Seas Volunteers encountered some exciting marine mammal sightings throughout the day. An Atlantic Grey Seal was spotted directly off from the Harbour Wall during the 11:00am survey period. Later in the day, a solitary Bottlenose Dolphin was seen foraging in the bay, in the area in front of the Cardinal boy. This dolphin remained in the bay for over an hour and was a consistent sighting throughout the day.
