There was a lot of dolphin activity in New Quay Harbour yesterday. Our LivingSeas volunteers spotted many groups, including numerous mother and calf pairs, foraging and socializing mostly near the cardinal buoy. Other notable sightings include a Compass jellyfish, four Common scoters, and several Oystercatchers and Manx shearwaters.
