Our LivingSeas volunteers carried out 2 boat surveys with Bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals observed on both surveys. There were some close dolphin encounters, with one group – consisting of two adults and a juvenile – chasing fish. A large number of moon jellyfish were also observed as well as seals seen hauled out on the rocks and in the water.
