LivingSeas volunteers had successful land surveys yesterday with sightings of both Bottlenose dolphins and an Atlantic grey seal in New Quay Harbour. Our ShoreFin team was able to ID mother and calf pair, Jacky and Jay who were foraging and mingling throughout the harbour and survey area for at least 6 hours. The single Atlantic grey seal was spotted about 600 meters out from the harbour wall.
