Survey Observations

Weather conditions: fair, sea state 1-2, wind direction NE

It was a busy day at Birds Rock, with two of the Big Three spotted from the cliff top, as well as a lot of bird activity. Our #SeaSeal volunteer recorded four grey seals hauled out in the sunshine. They were actively looking around, wailing and bickering with each other!

The water was exceptionally clear and shoals of fish could be seen just below the waves!! Large groups of sea birds formed on the surface, with gannets diving right into the centre. Two groups of bottlenose dolphins were also observed travelling past and leaping in the distance!
