Boat Based Sightings
August 2, 2018
Weather conditions: dry, Wind direction: W – NW, Sea state 1 – 3, light to medium swell, visibility: >10km
Our Living Seas volunteers carried out three boat based surveys aboard the Anna Lloyd yesterday, and were rewarded with several sightings of bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals on each trip. Dolphins were seen foraging, feeding and occasionally leaping and seals were sighted both scanning in the water and hauled out. The last sighting of the day was a basking shark – the second sighting in the past couple of weeks despite being rarely seen in Cardigan Bay!
