Sightings Update 23/04/2019: Bottlenose Dolphins

Weather conditions: fair/overcast/sunny, sea state 1-3, wind direction E/SE

Our Living Seas Volunteers conducted surveys from 7am-7pm. A mother and calf were spotted foraging around the headland in the morning. Then after a quiet period in the afternoon, up to six dolphins were sighted travelling across the bay, staying at the surface and chasing prey.
