Our LivingSeas volunteers had three successful Dolphin Survey Boat Trips yesterday, with sightings of all “Big Three”! A total of 18 Bottlenose dolphins were spotted throughout the day, displaying behaviours such as foraging and feeding, logging, and head slaps. A Harbour porpoise was spotted as well as Atlantic grey seals which were displaying behaviours such as bottling, swimming, and hauled out. Gannets and guillemots were spotted around the dolphin sightings.
