Our Living Seas Volunteers made the most of the lovely weather, conducting surveys from 7am-7pm. Bottlenose dolphins were seen travelling and foraging across the bay, with some groups coming close to the harbour wall. A few individuals were also spotted leaping and lunging out of the water. Volunteers also recorded a variety of bird life including gannets, cormorants and mixed gulls.
