Survey Observations

Weather conditions: fair, sea state 1, wind direction SW

It was a busy evening at Birds Rock, with a large number of Atlantic grey seals recorded by our Sea Seal volunteer. Two seals were observed hauled out throughout the entire two hour survey, with one being quite vocal. Towards the end of the survey, several more seals were spotted swimming into the area: splashing and fighting in the water once they reached the sea around the rocks. Bird sightings included oystercatchers, fulmars and a heron.
