Our Living Seas volunteers carried out surveys in the sunshine yesterday with a couple of brief bottlenose dolphin sightings in the morning. The dolphins were seen leaping and foraging around the headland. In the afternoon the sea swell picked up making sightings more difficult. Barrel jellyfish were seen throughout the day around the harbour wall. In the morning large groups of sea birds were seen on the horizon thought to be feeding.
