Bottlenose dolphins were seen across the majority of land based surveys conducted by our LivingSeas volunteers today. Sightings were more prominent throughout the mornings surveys with groups of dolphins encountered across every 15 minute interval of the 7am survey. Sightings remained fairly consistent through the rest of the day, with many animals observed foraging at depth across different areas of the bay, before a thick sea mist rolled into the area during the last survey of the day.
