Two of Cardigan Bay’s “big three” were spotted by our LivingSeas volunteers yesterday. A male Atlantic grey seal was seen just off the harbour wall in the morning and again later on, a bit farther out in the bay. Bottlenose dolphins were seen throughout the rest of the day including mother and calf pair, Jackie and Jay. They too were spotted within 100 meters of the harbour wall.
