Living Seas volunteers conducted two boat surveys today aboard the Anna Lloyd. During the first survey a number of bottlenose dolphin groups were spotted foraging and socialising. A lone Atlantic grey seal was seen hauled out on rocks. Large aggregations of herring gulls, kittiwakes, razorbills and gannets were also seen resting on the water. In the second survey our volunteer spotted both dolphins and grey seals.
