Survey Observations

Weather conditions: sunny to overcast, sea state: 1-3, visability: >10Km

Our living seas volunteers enjoyed a sunny day surveying from the Harbour Wall, with half of our surveys reporting dolphin sightings. The dolphins were mostly seen foraging in the bay, but were briefly seen leaping near the cardinal buoy and fish factory. We were also treated to a lot of bird activity, including Oystercatchers and diving Gannets.
