Bottlenose dolphins were seen throughout every land survey yesterday by our LivingSeas volunteers. Groups were mostly foraging, milling, and socializing through leaps and tail slaps. Our ShoreFin volunteers were able to ID Snowcap, a frequent visitor of New Quay Harbour! Later on in the day groups of dolphins including a mother and calf pair were spotted mingling and foraging around the Cardinal Buoy.
