Bottlenose dolphins were seen during three out of four surveys yesterday. The groups of dolphins were foraging across the bay and some were seen leaping and lunging out of the water. Atlantic grey seals were spotted swimming close to the harbour wall by our Living Seas volunteers during every survey. A red breasted merganser was also seen flying across New Quay Bay during the morning survey.
