Our Living Seas volunteers conducted surveys between 7am – 7pm yesterday. Following a quiet start, bottlenose dolphins were spotted travelling from the headland, exhibiting foraging and leaping behaviours. This group remained within the New Quay bay area into the early afternoon, with our regular visitor, Snowcap, and her calf, identified by our Shore Fin team. A smaller group of bottlenose dolphins were later spotted entering the bay, and foraging around the cardinal buoy. Atlantic grey seals were also identified during our afternoon surveys, bottling close to the harbour wall.
