Three of our Living Seas volunteers carried out an all day boat survey yesterday with the Cardigan Bay Big 3 being observed. Bottlenose Dolphins were seen throughout the survey foraging and travelling. There were also around 30 Atlantic Grey Seals hauled out and swimming in a rocky bay between Cardigan Island and Mwnt. One group of 2 harbour porpoises were observed early on in the day around 100 metres from the boat.
