Dolphins were present yesterday in New Quay from the beginning of our 7am survey foraging north of the harbour wall.  Our Living Seas Volunteer spotted five dolphins but they left the area just after 8 am not to be seen again for the remainder of the morning.  In the afternoon a mother and calf entered the harbour and stayed for just over 30 mins.
