A great day for dolphin sightings; they were seen on every survey. Though mostly seen travelling and foraging, they were briefly seen energetically head slapping and leaping. A group was also observed to be leaping and milling around for a sustained period.  One group of animals were very close to the headland rocks giving close views for the numerous watchers assembled there.
