Dolphins were present within the bay throughout our watches yesterday.  Our Living Seas Volunteers were fortunate to have good views of dolphins close to the wall and within the harbour.  They were joined by members of the Chester Zoo expedition team who were thrilled by their dolphin encounters. During the morning surveys up to eight dolphins including a calf were observed socialising and foraging. Later in the afternoon another group of 3 dolphins was spotted out by the Cardinal marker socialising near on the surface.
