Boat Based Sightings
April 21, 2018
Weather conditions: sea state 0-1, visibility >10km, light swell
Two boat surveys were conducted during the day, in which seals and porpoise were seen. During the first, a seal (thought to be male) swam within 10m of the boat while the boat was stationary. Porpoise were also seen on the trip, although a long distance away. The second trip saw only a seal, however both got excellent sightings of the New Quay bird colonies.
