Three boat-based surveys were conducted by our volunteers yesterday, with grey seals and bottlenose dolphins seen on every trip. The Pinnipeds (seals) were seen by the many caves and alcoves around the bay, whereas dolphins were observed further out to sea, with individuals such as ‘Lipstick’ spotted foraging and at times displaying small leaps.
