Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Fair-Sunny, sea state 2-3, wind direction N -NW.

A 9am survey was completed on the New Quay harbour wall. During the 9.30 period, a single harbour porpoise adult was seen between section 2 and 5. It was most likely carrying out long dives and travelling.

During the final survey of the day on the harbour wall, a single adult Atlantic Grey Seal was spotted traveling west in map section 2. The sex of the seal could not be identified due to the distance from the observers. This was the only time it was spotted during the survey.
