Two boat surveys were conducted yesterday, and both Bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals were sighted. A pregnant female seal was seen hauled out on a beach near the headland, which looked likely as if it would give birth later that day. Seals were also sighted bottling and scanning in both surveys. Bottlenose dolphins were seen in the second survey foraging near the boat.
