Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Overcast with rain at times, Sea state 3 becoming 1 from midday, Wind direction SE backing S.

There were poor conditions for our Living seas volunteers yesterday with rain and mist at times. Despite this bottlenose dolphins were spotted during each of our surveys socialising and foraging throughout the bay. Several small groups were seen with fourteen dolphins present during the day. In the late afternoon an Atlantic grey seal was observed off the headland.
