Survey Observations

Weather conditions: overcast, light rain, sea state 2, wind direction SW

Despite the drops of rain yesterday evening our SeaSeal volunteer headed up to Birds Rock to carry out a seal survey. 4 Atlantic grey seals were seen in the water, throughout the two hour survey, bottling and diving. There were plenty of fish around and bottlenose dolphins were observed feeding – a mother and calf could be seen chasing fish just below the surface!! There was a lot of bird activity too: gannets and gulls were spotted feeding on bait balls close to Birds Rock and a kestrel flew past carrying a mouse!
