Several small groups of bottlenose dolphins were seen during our morning land watches, appearing again during late afternoon. A number of mother and calf pairs were seen foraging for fish in the bay, for around an hour at a time. A Eurasian otter was seen once more, swimming towards the fish factory on the headland. We also had a number of Atlantic grey seal sightings, during the morning and late afternoon, with individuals exhibiting behaviours such as foraging, scanning and bottling.
