Weather conditions: sunny, wind direction SW/W swinging to N/NW in the afternoon, sea state 1

An ideal day for spotting sea life yesterday but our Living Seas Volunteers on the sea wall at New Quay had mixed fortunes. There were only occasional sightings of Bottlenose dolphins through the day. A total of 15 individual animals were seen in 5 groups but each group was present in the bay for only a brief time and mostly travelling through the area.
