Despite a choppy sea state our LivingSeas volunteers were able to spot a few groups of Bottlenose dolphins and an Atlantic grey seal on their Dolphin Survey Boat Trip yesterday. Groups of two to six dolphins were observed foraging, leaping, milling, and even approaching the boat on several occasions. The seal was spotted swimming West.
