Yesterday there were almost perfect surveying conditions; with sunshine, a calm seascape and high visibility. Our volunteers completed two boat surveys, a two hour survey and a three hour survey. The first survey completed was the two hour survey, during this time ten Atlantic Grey Seals were spotted and a range of jellyfish, including Barrel jellyfish and Moon jellyfish. During the three hour survey, six Atlantic Grey Seals were sighted hauled out on rocks and one Bottlenose Dolphin was seen travelling and swimming.
