Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Rain clearing and becoming sunny pm, Sea state 1-3, Wind direction SW-NW.

Three dolphins were spotted close to the wall and within the harbour during the 7am watch.  Conditions then deteriorated with rain and mist reducing visibility and surveys were cancelled for a while.  When surveys were resumed all was quiet until 4pm when our Livings Seas Volunteer briefly observed another group of three dolphins foraging and socialising near the headland.
