Bottlenose dolphins were observed in all four land surveys today, an increase in sightings after the low numbers following storm Callum. The largest group of 10 individuals was seen in the morning travelling towards the headland and some individuals, including Vader (pictured), came to forage close to the harbour wall. Five Atlantic grey seals were seen over the day and a group of common scoters was spotted flying west.
