A group of 3 bottlenose dolphins including one juvenile were observed foraging off the headland at the beginning of our 7am watch. The dolphins stayed for around 11/2 hours and then left the area. Our Living Seas Volunteers did not have any further sightings until the final watch of the day when a group of four dolphins entered the bay.  Up to 3 dolphins remained in the bay foraging throughout the 2 hour survey being still present at end of watch at 7pm.
