Survey Observations

The morning surveys were cancelled due to poor visibility but when conditions cleared in the afternoon our Living Seas Volunteer spotted a group of four dolphins foraging north of the harbour wall.  They remained for around 45 mins and at times were observed leaping and mingling at the surface.  Late in the evening a second group of three dolphins was spotted including a calf travelling across the bay.
