It was a busy day with large numbers of bottlenose dolphins seen during every landwatch by our living seas volunteers!! They were initially observed leaping and chasing fish over the reef. Later on the dolphins were seen travelling and foraging around the bay. At the end of the day an Atlantic grey seal was spotted bottling next to the harbour wall! Plenty of birds were recorded including large flocks of swallows, gannets, rock pipits and guillemots in winter plumage.
