Infrequent sightings of Dolphins today saw sightings of these marine mammals by our LivingSeas volunteers only briefly across 3 land based surveys today. Bottlenose Dolphins were spotted immediately during the first watch of the day at 07:00am showing some lively activity foraging in the bay, however Dolphins were then not seen again until almost 11:00am, and then only briefly. Some hours went by without the presence of any marine mammals in the bay, until eventually at 04:00pm a couple of Bottlenose Dolphin groups appeared in the bay and remained foraging here for some time.
