During our 11am – 1pm survey a number of bottlenose dolphins were present within the bay in several loose groups. In total 11 dolphins including one juvenile were spotted exhibiting plenty of social interaction and mingling on the surface.  At times one group of six approached close to the harbour wall.  Bird observations included a wintering red-throated diver and an unusual sighting for New Quay of a little egret.
