The first two land watches yesterday were cancelled due to the strong winds and high tide bringing waves over the harbour wall. An Atlantic grey seal was observed bottling and surfing in the water in the afternoon and a large number of seabirds were being blown into the bay, however there were sadly no dolphin sightings.
