Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Overcast with rain, Wind direction N, Sea state 4/5

The intense swell of a sea state five lead to all but two surveys to be cancelled yesterday. Despite the high waves, a group of two dolphins were spotted foraging close to the harbour wall and just to the side of the harbour itself. An Atlantic grey seal was also seen swimming west. Other notable sightings include five Fulmars and a Gannet.
