A quiet morning for our Living Seas Volunteers with just the sighting of two Atlantic grey seals north of the harbour wall. Around 5 pm a group of four bottlenose dolphins appeared off the headland. Three of these remained throughout the evening survey giving a spectacular display of leaping and splashy behaviour.
