Survey Observations

Weather Conditions: fair, Wind direction: S/SE, Sea state 1-3 

It was a good day for marine mammal observations for our Living Seas volunteers with two of the Cardigan Bay big 3 being observed. Two Atlantic Grey Seals were spotted close to the harbour wall and near the fish factory. Bottlenose dolphins could also be seen foraging and displaying social behaviours such as leaping. Two of the dolphins were identified by our Shore Fin team as Jackie and her calf Jay.
