Yesterday our volunteers were collecting data whilst on board one of our four hour boat trips. Two groups of dolphins were seen diving and foraging, and a lone seal was spotted in the water. However the most remarkable sighting was of the rarely spotted Sunfish, the first seen by our volunteers this season. Also seen were a plethora of birds including: Kittiwakes, Gannets, Fulmars and Manx Shearwaters.
