Survey Observations

Weather: overcast, wind N, sea state 1

Our SeaSeal volunteer was up early yesterday morning to carry out a two hour survey at Birds Rock. Five Atlantic grey seals were observed bottling and scanning while in the water around the rocks, with a couple looking to haul-out! Bottlenose dolphins were briefly spotted, travelling past the survey area. Three choughs were observed flying around the cliffs, a kestrel was seen hovering above Birds Rock, and fulmars and kittiwakes were also sighted!
