Bottlenose dolphins were spotted in 5 out of 6 of our land-based surveys yesterday, by our Living Seas volunteers. Groups were observed foraging throughout the morning, with several individuals closely approaching the harbour wall. Also sighted close to the wall were a group of large fish, and a small compass jellyfish. Dolphins then returned to the New Quay harbour area in our final survey of the day, seen to be travelling and leaping.
