Our Living Seas Volunteers sighted dolphins throughout the morning foraging in the vicinity of the Cardinal Marker.  Nine individuals were seen including two juveniles.  After 2 pm as the wind strengthened and the sea became rougher there were no more dolphin sightings. During the day two Atlantic grey seals were spotted and there was a sighting of a migrating common tern.
