A great morning for bottlenose sightings saw dolphins spotted in almost every interval up until 3pm by our LivingSeas volunteers yesterday. A group of six, including mother and calf pair, Jacky and Jay, were observed tossing fish by the harbour wall. Two adults and a calf then made their way around the wall into the harbour area and foraged there for the next hour.
