Dolphins were present in the bay close to the harbour wall at the start of the 7 am watch. Our #LivingSeas volunteers continued to see dolphins throughout the morning surveys and into the early afternoon. At least seven groups were identified with up to 18 different animals being present. The dolphins were observed foraging throughout the bay. A single Atlantic grey seal was also spotted.
