Survey Observations

Weather conditions: sunny, wind direction: N-NW, sea state: 0-1

During the first two surveys of the day 5 bottlenose dolphins were sighted by our volunteers. Three adults and two juveniles were feeding by the reef, chasing fish by the surface and briefly leaping! Following this the afternoon surveys were much quieter. No cetaceans were spotted, however several compass jellyfish were seen drifting past the harbour wall.
