Bottlenose dolphins were seen throughout the day yesterday by our Living Seas volunteers, foraging for most of the day but were also seen socialising and leaping. A number of mother & calf pairs were able to be identified, such as Corky & calf and Snowcap & calf. Lipstick was also seen foraging close to the harbour wall during both morning surveys. An Atlantic grey seal was also seen just off the headland by the fish canning factory during the morning survey.
