Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Mostly overcast with rain late on, Wind direction S/SW, Sea state 2-4

Despite the variable weather and difficult sea conditions our Living Seas volunteers observed groups of dolphins throughout the day foraging within the bay. At times the animals approached close to the sea wall and entered the harbour area. Again there were several mother and calf pairs and our Shorefin team identified Snowcap and Corky with their calves.
