Our Living Seas volunteers carried out one boat survey yesterday, with a number of Atlantic Grey Seals seen bottling close to the shore. Towards the end of the survey they were lucky enough to observe a group of 6 bottlenose dolphins foraging including a calf and juvenile. A gannet could also be seen foraging close to the cliffs.
