Yesterday our Living Seas volunteers were on board 3 separate boat trips, taking 2-hour surveys on each trip. On the first trip, Habour Porpoise were sighted travelling and Altantic Grey Seals were spotted bottling. In the next two boat surveys, the same group of Bottlenose dolphins were seen milling and foraging, and at times even taking part in some bow-riding.
