A group of four bottlenose dolphins including a juvenile were seen foraging by the Cardinal Buoy during the first 30 minutes of a survey starting at 9am this morning. They then travelled west across the bay and were joined by a further group of 4 dolphins including 2 calves. There then followed an explosion of activity with leaps, back flips and somersaults as the new group continued rapid progress west past the headland.
