Survey Observations

Weather conditions: overcast/rain, wind direction S/SW, sea state 1-4

Our LivingSeas volunteers had a good day for dolphin observation yesterday, but unfortunately half of the surveys were cancelled due to poor weather. There was a large group of 6 adults and 1 calf foraging for most of the morning close to the cardinal buoy. Later in the day 2 calves could be seen frequently leaping, alongside a group of 4 adults.
