Survey Observations

LivingSeas volunteers spotted several Bottlenose dolphins throughout the day. In the morning, one came quite close to the harbour wall and during the afternoon, groups were seen around the cardinal buoy chasing prey, leaping, and fast mingling. Gannets were seen flying above the groups that were feeding near the surface.
