Survey Observations

Our land surveys yesterday produced excellent sightings of bottlenose dolphins for our Living Seas Volunteers.  Two dolphins were present in the bay at the start of our surveys at 7am.  Later in the morning numbers increased so at midday there were ten individuals in the bay foraging and socialising.  Up to 20 individuals in total were seen including a young calf. Later in the day an Atlantic grey seal was seen travelling towards the headland.
