Our Living Seas volunteers conducted six surveys on New Quay Harbour wall from 7am-7pm yesterday. Our volunteers were fortunate to observe dolphins in every survey where they were seen foraging, milling and travelling around the area. In the 9am survey a group of adult dolphins and one juvenile were spotted out by the cardinal marker foraging and milling near the surface.
