It was a misty day out at sea, however our Living Seas volunteers recorded 9 Atlantic grey seals over the course of two 2 hour boat trips. Two seals were unusually curious, repeatedly surfacing near the Anna Lloyd. Gannets were seen diving, as well as many razorbills and guillemots that were spotted around Birds Rock. A group of bottlenose dolphins were also sighted during a later boat trip.
