An eventful boat based survey aboard the Sulaire with our Living Seas Volunteer spotting the Cardigan Bay Big 3. Several groups of dolphins were spotted totalling about 9 individuals including one juvenile.  Behaviour included socialising and foraging.  A pair of harbour porpoises were seen off Bird’s Rock travelling west and nearby a single Atlantic grey seal was bottling.
