17 Bottlenose dolphins were seen by our living Seas volunteers during the morning surveys. One group consisting of two females, each with their calf, foraged just off the end of the harbour to the delight of the early morning visitors to New Quay. As the sea picked up in the afternoon observations became fewer but one group of three individuals was spotted in the evening.
