Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Sunny, Sea state 3, Wind direction NNW

Our LivingSeas volunteers spotted numerous dolphin groups yesterday. Dolphins were mostly seen farther out in the bay between the tip of the headland and the cardinal buoy. Two dolphins did come close to the harbour wall and our ShoreFin volunteers were able to identify them as ‘Brienne’ and her calf ‘Pod’ with photo ID! There was quite a bit of Gannet activity including circling and diving over dolphin groups. Other birds spotted include a Black headed gull, Oystercatchers, a Rock pipit, and a Fulmar.
