Bottlenose dolphins were spotted throughout the day, as well as two Atlantic Grey Seals travelling towards the fish factory. The dolphins were seen interacting with a boat, approaching then bow riding. Amongst the dolphins was the frequently spotted Snowcap, pictured below with a calf, courtesy of our #ShoreFin volunteers. Furthermore we had some interesting bird sightings, seeing Gannets and Guillemots diving and four Whimbrels.
