Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Sunny, Sea state: 1-3, Wind direction: variable  

Our Living Seas Volunteers had another sunny day of surveys on the sea wall, and dolphins were seen on every survey. As is typical they were mostly seen near the cardinal buoy and fish factory, however a mother and calf were twice seen coming in very close to the wall and beach briefly, before swimming off. In addition a particularly high number of Oystercatchers and Kittiwakes were seen, as well as diving Gannets.
