Our #SeaSeal volunteer headed up to Birds Rock early yesterday morning to conduct seal survey. Four Atlantic grey seals were sighted in the water: two seen bottling (pictured) throughout the entire 2 hour survey and two swimming past Birds Rock. Bottlenose dolphins were seen, with one mother and calf foraging close to the rocks for a short time. A variety of birds were also observed, including several gannets, fulmars, choughs and a peregrine falcon flying past!!
