Nine Bottlenose dolphins

Bottlenose dolphins were seen throughout the survey between the pier and the cardinal buoy, up to the fish factory. At the start of the survey long dives, thought to be foraging at depth, followed by some leaping and some travel with regular surfacing and then staying near the cardinal buoy. Dolphins were spotted staying, leaping, fast circling. Later in the survey one bottlenose dolphin was spotted near the fish factory and one making rapid progress with leaping and splashing back towards the fish factory.
