Two boat based surveys were conducted throughout the day, both with a good number and array of sightings. In particular the first trip of the day at 10:45, that despite the mist, was lucky enough to encounter the Cardigan Bay ‘Big 3’, that includes Bottlenose Dolphins, Harbour Porpoise and Atlantic Grey Seals, as well as a wide array of Sea Birds. The afternoons boat trip also encountered a number of Atlantic Grey Seal individuals as well as a group of Bottlenose Dolphins as the mornings mist faded away throughout the day.
