Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Sunny, Wind direction: variable, Sea state: 2-3

Our LivingSeas volunteers recorded quite a lot of activity yesterday in New Quay Harbour. Numerous Bottlenose dolphins were spotted throughout the day. The animals were observed mostly foraging and travelling between the shores of Dolau and the cardinal buoy. Our ShoreFin team was able to identify mother and calf, Jacky and Jay, who came very close to the harbour wall. Gannets were spotted diving and a Kittiwake was also seen flying above the water.
