Our Living Seas volunteers conducted surveys from 9am to 5pm yesterday out on the harbour wall. It was a quiet day as only 3 bottlenose dolphins were spotted in the 3pm survey, however they did come right up to the wall.  An Atlantic grey seal also made an appearance in two of the surveys, where it was seen bottling in the rough seas.
