Living Seas volunteers conducted two boat surveys yesterday aboard the Anna Lloyd. Bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals were spotted in both, with three dolphins bow-riding the boat as the first trip came in, and two pods seen foraging on the second. The seals were seen bottling just off the coast in both surveys.
