Five bottlenose dolphins were seen during the 7 am watch foraging north of the harbour wall. Later in the morning three dolphins including a juvenile entered the bay and remained for most of the day to the delight of the visitors to the New Quay Regatta and the Living Seas Roadshow. They were joined by four other adults for a while mid-afternoon.
