Survey Observations

Weather conditions: overcast and misty, sea state 0-2, wind direction S-SE

It was a quiet day on the harbour wall. The only sighting of the day was of two bottlenose dolphins spotted around 9:00. They were observed feeding and leaping, with a gannet diving nearby. Due to the poor visibility the final two land watches of the day were, unfortunately, cancelled. Some interesting bird-life, including a dunlin, was however observed.
