Sightings Update 19/07/2018: Bottlenose dolphins

Weather conditions: sunny, wind direction N-W, sea state 0-3

Six land surveys were conducted from the harbour wall in New Quay yesterday, with bottlenose dolphins seen around the bay mostly from 7am-11am. The cetaceans were observed foraging for the most part with the occasional leap out of the water. Common sandpipers and well as gannets, fulmar (pictured), redshanks and compass jellyfish were also recorded.
