Survey Observations

Weather Conditions: Sunny, sea state 1, wind direction: variable

Bottlenose dolphins were spotted during the morning surveys quite far off the New Quay headland. However, these dolphins left the area around 10am and there were no dolphin sightings for the rest of the day. Atlantic grey seals were also identified a couple of times throughout the day. During the 9am survey one was seen in the middle of the bay and at around 1pm another was seen a few hundred metres off the harbour wall.
