A glorious sunny day in New Quay yesterday for our #LivingSeas volunteers carrying out surveys on the harbour wall. Bottlenose dolphins were spotted in 2 of our morning surveys, they were first recorded travelling across the bay towards the cardinal buoy and then seen foraging along the reef in a loose group. Atlantic grey seals were recorded in our first and last survey of the day, both times they were spotted between the fish factory and the harbour wall scanning and swimming.
