Our Living Seas Volunteers observed bottlenose dolphins during 4 of the 5 surveys undertaken yesterday. Four dolphins were present off the headland at the start of our surveys and there were intermittent sightings of dolphins foraging throughout the morning. In the evening a group of five dolphins including two juveniles were spotted entering the bay where they remained for over two hours foraging.
