Survey Observations

Weather Conditions: Sunny, Wind Direction SW/W/NW Sea State 2-3

 Marine mammals were spotted in all four of the land surveys conducted yesterday, with the sunny weather making for ideal spotting conditions. A total of 10 bottlenose dolphins were observed foraging in the bay, including Snowcap and her calf, and several Atlantic grey seals were spotted bottling and scanning close to the wall. A sandwich tern flew over in the afternoon, a particularly late sighting for this species.
